COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Ohio State University police officer is being praised for shooting and killing a man who drove his car into a crowd and stabbed multiple people on campus.

Department of Public Safety Director Monica Moll says 28-year-old Officer Alan Horujko (huh-RUJ'-koh) started on the Ohio State University police force in January 2015. Moll says Horujko did a "fabulous job" on Monday and is owed a debt of gratitude.

Ohio State president Michael Drake says he thanked the officer for following his training and being able to end the situation within about a minute.

University police Chief Craig Stone says it was fortunate there was a nearby gas leak the officer had gone to investigate. Stone says it helped position the officer to respond to the attack so quickly.
