The heroic officer who engaged and stopped an armed assailant at Ohio State University has been identified as OSU police officer Alan Horujko.
Monday morning, an “active shooter” alert was sent out by the Ohio State University Emergency Management Team as a man identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan recklessly attacked individuals on campus grounds with a car and a knife.
Artan crashed his vehicle into pedestrians on campus, then emerged from his vehicle brandishing a butcher knife, proceeding to assault several people on the scene.
At least nine people were hospitalized, including one in “critical condition,” CNN reported.
Liberals rush to condemn ‘lax gun laws’ in Ohio State attack. But there was no gun! Officer Horujko arrived “about a minute later,” according to USA Today, and engaged the suspect. Artan was fatally shot by the officer, authorities said.
Alan Horujko joined The Ohio State University police department in January of 2015. A profile in The Lantern, the university newspaper, noted that Horujko studied security and intelligence at OSU and graduated in 2012 after working with Student Safety Services.
“That’s kind of what led me to wanting to become a police officer,” Horujko, told The Lantern shortly after earning his badge.
Previously an engineering major, Horujko said “he did not feel as passionately about engineering as his classmates did.”
“I just couldn’t see myself sitting in a cubicle,” said Horujko, who was previously an engineering major. “By working (at Student Safety Services) and seeing what the police do, and what Student Safety does on the campus, the kind of behind-the-scenes stuff really led me to a law enforcement career.”
He has now saved lives in that career.
President-elect Donald Trump commended the Ohio State University emergency team and thanked the first responders for their service and actions.
