Somali Muslim terrorist, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, left at least 9 people injured, one critically, by running them down with his car and stabbing others with a butcher knife. Those numbers would have been a lot higher if not for the quick response by Ohio State University police officer Alan Horujko.
The Daily Caller Horujko, 28, stopped Abdul Razak Ali Artan (below) in less than two minutes after the junior OSU student rammed his car into a group of pedestrians and then attacked them with a butcher’s knife.
Horujko radioed to dispatch at 9:52 a.m. that a man had driven his car into a group of pedestrians near Watts Hall on campus. He then radioed again to say there was a man with a knife, and, “officer in trouble.”
One minute later, at 9:53 a.m., Horujko radioed for a third time to say he had engaged the suspect and shots had been fired. His quick thinking — and decisive actions — prevented Artan from further harming students he’d already attacked, and stopped him from hurting anyone else.
Eleven people were sent to the hospital after the attack, and the school was placed on lock down as a precaution while police searched for any additional attackers. Thankfully, none of those sent to the hospital have life-threatening injuries.
Horujko joined the OSU police force after he graduated from OSU in 2015.
