Suspect in active shooter situation at OH high school in custody

Suspect in active shooter situation at OH high school in custody

An Ohio SWAT team arrested one person and confiscated a gun after an "active shooter" was reported at a Columbus high school on Friday morning. Parents should not come to school.

The suspect was arrested less than a half-hour later and is now being questioned.

Police did not explain what Abdullahi's motive was.

Jacobs said the building was cleared and they're investigating if any shots were fired at all. Though the student reportedly had gang-affiliated content on his personal Facebook page, a source told The Columbus Dispatch that the shooting wasn't gang-related.

"Excellent job by our officers!" tweeted Columbus Police.
