An investigation into the motives of the Ohio State University attacker who wounded 11 people yesterday morning is underway.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18-year-old student at the University, drove onto campus, knocking down students and attacking people with a knife on the Columbus campus yesterday, causing terror among students and teachers before he was fatally shot by Officer Alan Horujko, reports WGN.
The chilling final message shared by the attacker on Facebook has already become a key piece in the investigation.
In his post, he directed a message to America demanding they stop ‘interfering with other countries’ and praising American-born Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki.

The worrisome post refers to Artan’s ‘boiling point’, which he reached after witnessing the abuse of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, the former military dictatorship from which the U.S has recently suspended its final sanction.
The attack goes down as yet another tragic instance of violence on college campuses across the country.
