A Parent’s Worse Nightmare

A call that you’re child is hurt…or worse, is a parent’s greatest fear.

But, that’s just the call Lisa Barnes of Dover, Ohio received Monday morning.

Her son is a junior at The Ohio State University and was on campus when a 20 year old student drove his car into a group of people before getting out and stabbing people with a butcher’s knife.

Barnes’ son was in a basement classroom and was not injured.

However; the latest reports list 8 people sent to the hospital with stab wounds and other injuries.

The attacker, 20-year-old Abdul Rasak Ali Artan, was a student at OSU and native of Somalia.

Campus office Alan Horujko, on the force for just two years, shot and killed the knife-wielding student.

Barnes says this incident brings to light the importance of having armed officers on all school campuses.
