Columbus, Ohio: In a car and knife attack on the Ohio University campus on Monday morning, ten people suffered few injuries, fire and hospital officials revealed after the school informed about the same on Twitter, asking students to find shelter and to "Run Hide Fight".

In the attack, one was severely injured while nine others sustained non-life threatening wounds.

According to the university's Wexner Medical Center's spokeswoman Sherri Kirk, four of the injured people were being treated for non-life threatning injuries there.

OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital were also treated two each for similar injuries, said the hospital officials.

According to Ohio State senior Cassidie Baker, "No one actually knew what was happening, other than there's an active shooter."

After around an hour, post the Ohio State informed about the presence of an active shooter in the university campus, it said that the shelter-in-place warning had been lifted and the officials had secured the place by killing the shooter.

The university's emergency management department tweeted around 10 am,"Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.''

After the information of the atatck was shared, several police vehicles rushed to the scene and also blocked the roads around the perimeter of the campus, clogging area traffic.

Ohio State, having around 60,000 students at its main Columbus campus, is amongst the largest universities of the nation.
