1campStudents are being told to “run, hide, fight” after an “active shooter” fired shots on a US university campus. Seven people have been taken to hospital, officials say and emergency services are on the scene.

Two of the injured people are in a stable condition but there are no details on the other five. One student at the scene said: “I just saw people running.” He also confirmed that he saw one person laying on the ground.

Ohio State University alerted its students around 10am local time (3pm GMT), advising them to “continue to shelter in place”. One eyewitness told NBC affiliates that his girlfriend was hiding in bathroom in Ohio State University after hearing ‘multiple gunshots.’
