attack

Ohio State Police

The Ohio State University police officer who fatally shot the man responsible for a car-and-knife attack on campus last year has received an award for his actions.

When MoniCa Singh, then 19, went to visit her parents in Lucknow, India, in 2005, she had just finished her first year at the National Institute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi. She hoped to complete her degree and pursue a career in fashion design.

Then her life changed in a flash.

As she was driving down the street, a long-time acquaintance waved and motioned her to roll down her car window. Over the years, she had refused his persistent marriage proposals but his sociable gesture seemed to signal that was in the past. So why not?

The U.S. Attorney has charged Esteban Santiago, the man in custody for carrying out the deadly shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida on Friday afternoon.

At least five people were killed and six others were injured in the shooting, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office.

Response to OSU Campus Attack

On Monday morning, the Ohio State University administration alerted students and employees to "Run, Hide, Fight," by text and email. A university student had plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then turned on others with a butcher knife. The incident lasted fewer than sixty seconds, and even after the attacker was shot and killed by a campus police officer, students and staff hid and waited for more than an hour. We discuss the attack, the police response, and the psychological toll of violence.

At an off-campus coffee shop Monday, Ohio State University senior Mohamed Farah catches up on his homework.

"I didn't get a lot of work done today just because there's a lot going on," he says. "I tried to stay away from the news, but I kept going back to it."

Farah first learned of an attack on campus when security sent a text to the entire university: "Active shooter on campus: Run Hide Fight."
