OSU Incident; Scam Squad; Lame Duck Session

Terrifying scene at the Ohio State University in Columbus today, after reports of an active shooter. It turns out the attacker did not have a gun, but drove his car into a crowd and used his knife to injure several people. The story continues to develop even hours later, but OSU reported the suspect was killed by the first officer to engage, though many people were sent to area hospitals. Students were alerted to the incident with a 'Buckeye Alert' reading: Active Shooter on Campus -- Run, Hide Fight. We talk to an expert about this advice.

Next, we turn our attention to Cleveland, where the police and the city are asking to hear from you regarding how officers deal with non-criminal actions on the street.

And, know a senior citizen who's been fleeced out of money? Cuyahoga County is fighting back, rolling out a new effort today.
