A spokesman for OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital says the three people taken to Grant were discharged Monday afternoon and the two victims taken to Riverside Methodist remain in fair condition Tuesday morning.
    
Authorities have said OSU student Abdul Razak Ali Artan purposely plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus Monday morning and then got out of his vehicle and began stabbing people with a butcher knife. He was fatally shot by a campus police officer.

A U.S. official has identified the suspect in the Ohio State attack that injured nine people as a man of Somali descent.
    
The official identified Abdul Razak Ali Artan as the now-deceased suspect. He was born in Somalia and living in the United States as a legal permanent resident. It was unclear when Artan came to the U.S.
    
The official wasn't authorized to publicly discuss details of the ongoing case and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
    
A second law enforcement official confirmed that authorities believe the suspect's name is Abdul Artan. That official also wasn't authorized to publicly discuss details of the ongoing case and spoke on condition of anonymity.
    
Authorities say the suspect was shot to death Monday by a police officer after driving up onto a curb and into pedestrians and attacking people with a knife.

Ohio State police say the attacker on campus purposely drove over a curb and into pedestrians and then got out of the vehicle and began stabbing people with a butcher knife.
    
Police Chief Craig Stone spoke early Monday afternoon at a news conference.
    
Authorities also said police believe that there was only one attacker. Ohio State said earlier that the suspect had been shot and killed.
    
The university had sent out a series of tweets at around 10 a.m. Monday saying there was an active shooter on campus and that shooters should run, hide or fight. About an hour and a half later, the university said a shelter-in-place warning had been lifted and the scene was secure.
    
Authorities said later that it doesn't appear that the suspect used a gun in the attack.
