>> announcer: live from the channel 4 studios in boston, wbz news at noon starts now. breaking news. a heavy police presence at ohio state university right now. students were told to run, hide, fight after report of an active shooter on campus. several people sent to the hospital. still a very serious and active scene there right now. >> let's get over to jim sm breaking story. jim what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, kate, we want to take you to the scene because obviously this story is still developing, even as we speak. the shelter in place has been lifted on campus. we do know one suspect has been shot and killed by police. there were reports that police were still looking for a second suspect. at least nine people now have been transported to the hospital. one of them is in critical condition. we do not know the cause of their injuries at this time, scene still active, of course.
a second s.w.a.t. team just arrived less than an hour ago. the fbi and atf are also on the scene and you can see police in this video putting on their tactical gear. police also still going in and out of buildings on campus. students have been either evacuated told to shelter in place in their dorms or classrooms. our cbs affiliate said this all starred around 9:30 this morning when a red suv ran right into the chemical state's campus after the fire alarm was pulled. then police said two people jumped out of the car, one armed with a knife, the other with a gun. ohio state emergency management just sent out this tweet just before 10:00 this morning. you can eye alert. active shooter on campus. run, hide, fight. watch hall 19 and college. watch hall is a materials science and engineering building. the phrase "run, hide, and fight" is standard protocol for
it means "run, evacuate if possible, hide, get silently out of view, or fight as a last resort." take action to disrespect or incapacitate the shooter if your life is in imminent danger. students report seeing people running and hearing gunshots. our affiliate in columbus, ohio, wpns, spoke with a student moments ago. >> i was walking to class and i just heard a bunch of people screaming and then -- a lot of people running. and was struck by a car. she told me that, uh, that they -- the fire alarm was pulled in watch hall, that there was a car waiting for them, and it just -- like -- plowed through some people. >> reporter: they were hit by that car, joe? >> yeah, they were hit by -- they were hit by a car. that's how everyone was injured. i called about 30 minutes ago because i heard people were saying people were getting shot
all. i was -- i was right there and i can tell you right now that -- uh, i did not hear a gun go off, especially not multiple times. but people were struck by a car. >> reporter: okay, so from where you were, you didn't hear any gunshots and the folks who were injure word injured by that car slamming through the wall of watch labs? >> yeah. so the car, um, from what i can tell because, uh, a very good friend of , works in that building and he said his friend said that the fire alarm was pulled, a bunch of them just walked out of the building casually and a car just went after them. it seems like that's how people were seriously injured and i talked to a person who was minorly hit. she was running away, um, but there was -- there was no gunshot. i don't think people were shot, at least multiple people. >> reporter: again, this
shelter in place has just been lifted at ohio state university. however, of course, all classes have been canceled. ohio state the third largest university in the country with nearly 60,000 students on its main campus. a massive undertaking to put that school in lockdown. again, a suspect is dead, police might be looking for another suspect after reports of gunshots on campus and, again, repeating the information as we have it right now, nine people transported the hospital, unfortunately one in critical condition. we will continue to follow the latest and bring you updates as you get them. i'm jim smith, wbz news. >> jim, thank you. we want to bring in security analyst and former boston police commissioner ed davis on the phone right now. thanks for joining us. >> hi, kate, thank you. >> a report of a shooter on a campus like ohio state, this massive-sized campus, very difficult for police to sort out what's going on. what do police do in a situation like this when they
>> well, kate, ohio state is the third-largest campus in the united states. and i'm certain just like we do in boston that there are good working relationships between the local police and the, uh, security department at ohio state. there's cleary a massive response by police, fire, ems, and, uh, federal and state authorities so this appears to be very the fact the school has sent out pages and tweets telling people to "run, hide, and fight" is consistent with the training and shows the school has spent some time in preparing their students and their employees for just this type of situation. we're only 90 minutes or so into this right now. there is information that's coming out that's very
see any public statements on it. >> can i ask you a question. when you hear the fbi and atf are involved with the investigation, that seems pretty quickly for federal agents to get involved in this. does that signal in addition as far as who might have been this act? >> not at this point in time, chris. it's protocol for those agencies to respond to you can tell the scene is being worked very actively. there are people inside and there are detectives and administrative people from all the agencies involved meeting to determine who is going to be in charge of this. is this just an incident involving a, uh, disgruntled employee or someone who, uh, who has a problem with the school? or is it something that, uh is
-- you know -- pulled the fire alarm first and then it seems as though the assaultive behavior took place after that, but it's very early to guess right now. no agency has taken control of this just yet. >> interesting insight this noon from former boston police commissioner and wbz security analyst ed davis. ed, thanks for your time. we appreciate your insight on this. >> thank you, kate. we have more breaking news right now at noon. a man hit in a in that crash. that crash friday morning was caught on camera and shows the man being hit as he was leaving the spot bar and lounge. the driver turned himself in over the weekend. so far, no charges have been filed. developing this noon, lester police are searching for a suspicious driver who approached two children. >> police said that man used a playstation 4 to try and lure the kids and now the boys'

now, looking pretty nice in boston. it is 43, the humidity is 49% right now, and wind is west at 99 miles per hour so we should be light wind for the afternoon as it slowly drops off. the temperature throughout the afternoon going up probably up in the range of getting finally in the mid-40s or so, possibly 45 or 46 this afternoon. that's in most location around boston. pretty nice across most of the nation, warm across the south, not all that cold. it's coldest in the intermountain region out west has been falling. in some plays, snow in the last 48 hours. we're not going get any snow, at least around here, but rain is on the way from this system that will arrive here in a little bit tomorrow morning but most of it after the morning commute is tomorrow afternoon when we get most of the rain. i'll show you that shortly it will chill off tonight, even though we will have high, thin cloudiness this afternoon, may add to a very colorful sunset because of those wispy clouds coming in. it will go down to 25 to 30 in
to 35 to 40 by dawn, hopefully negating any chance of an icing or freezing rain situation as the rain develops. now, these high temperatures tomorrow, low to middle 50s will happen very late in the day or even tomorrow evening as it the warm air finally flow in here and the rain will come in from this system in the midwest. it will churn right along so a little bit of rain tomorrow morning, a little ice and snow way up north, but that rain will evolve into a steadier, heavier rain tomorrow afternoon for the afternoon commute. it's going to come potential of 1 to 2-inch of rain not only from this system but on wednesday we get another system coming right along through southern new england to give us some additional rain of 1 to as much as 2 to 2.5 inches. my accuweather forecast shows you that. we have the rain starting tomorrow, little bit in the morning, most of in it the afternoon and most of the rain on wednesday will be in the afternoon and evening. partly sunny, 56 on thursday and cooler at the end of the week. back to you, chris kate.
