Ohio State attacker acted alone, influenced by ISIS, FBI finds


An Ohio State University student who attacked and injured 13 people on campus with his car and knife acted alone, according to an FBI report released today, the one-year-anniversary of the attack.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan on the morning of Nov. 28, 2016, drove his Honda Civic over a sidewalk near OSU’s Watts Hall. He struck as many as 10 pedestrians, some fellow students. He then used a butcher knife to stab some of the pedestrians.

The Cincinnati Division of the FBI said it determined the perpetrator acted alone and was not directed by a terrorist group. Also, the perpetrator appeared to have been influenced by extremist ideology, including ISIS propaganda. The FBI said its federal investigation has ended, and that no further details are expected to be released.

OSU police officer Alan Horuijko, a 2007 graduate of Fairfield High School in Butler County, shot and killed Artan. He was cleared by a grand jury in May and lauded as a hero.
