In brief: Man stabs four at Ohio building

 

Columbus, Ohio – A man armed with three knives went on a stabbing spree in a downtown office building on Wednesday, starting in the admissions office of a technical school and injuring four people, including an employee of the state attorney general, authorities said. The rampage stopped when he was shot by a police officer on the street in front of the building just blocks from the state Capitol.

The man confronted one victim in the admissions office of Miami-Jacobs Career College before 1 p.m. and stabbed him, Columbus police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner said. Other people intervened and took away a knife the man was using but didn’t realize he had others, Weiner said.

Four men, including the attacker, were in critical condition after the stabbing spree, authorities said, and a fifth man had minor injuries. Police have identified the victims and the attacker but haven’t released their names, Weiner said.

Kidnapped baby found after 8 years

Fort Worth, Texas – A Texas infant who vanished eight years ago will be reunited with his mother after police arrested his former baby sitter who is accused of kidnapping him, authorities said Wednesday.

Krystle Rochelle Tanner, 26, remained jailed without bond in San Augustine, about 200 miles southeast of Fort Worth. She was arrested on a kidnapping charge Monday.

The boy’s mother, Auboni Champion-Morin, told Houston television station KPRC that she may be reunited with her son later this week. Authorities said she must first undergo a DNA test, even though they’re sure of his identity.
