It started as an Active Shooter alert followed by a warning to those on the Ohio State University campus to run-hide-fight, if need be.

It was over relatively quickly but nine people received injures from a butcher knife or being hit by a car.

The attacker, a young man from Somalia was dead, shot by a police officer. Emergency planners are giving approval to the way Ohio State's procedures worked. GLT's Charlie Schlenker talked with Illinois State University's Emergency Manager, Eric Hodges, about what plans ISU has in a case like that and what went well in Ohio.
