Yep, good guy with a gun. OSU was rocked by an attack that injured at least 9 and kiled one. Well, there could have been many more people injured or even killed. Meet the hero who killed OSU attacker Abdul Razal Ali Artan.
Ohio State University Police Officer Alan Horujko stopped Abdul Razal Ali Artan in less than two minutes from the time the OSU junior rammed his car into a group of pedestrians and attacked them with a butcher knife.

Horujko radioed at 9:52 a.m. that a driver had rammed into a group of pedestrians near Watts Hall on campus. Then he followed up to let them know that the man had a knife and “officer in trouble.”
Just a minute later Horujko radioed again to let it be known that he had engaged with the suspect and shots had been fired.

The quick actions of Officer Horjko not only kept Artan from injuring his victims even worse. It also kept him from going and injuring more students.
While it’s unfortunate that a life was list and there was an injury, it is good that this good guy with a gun was nearby and able to keep the injuries and loss of life at a minimum.
