Last night, four people were stabbed by a man wielding a machete at a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. Fortunately, all are expected to survive their injuries. The assailant fled the scene, but authorities caught up with him and eventually shot and killed him. The assailant was later identified as Mohammed Barry who is believed to be of Somali origin who has spent time in Dubai.
Columbus PD have stated they believe the attack was random. However, Barry was in the restaurant 30 to 45 minutes prior to the attack and then returned with the machete. This was no random attack.
