Ohio: Man Wielding Machete Injures 4 In Bizarre Restaurant Attack

  • by: Jeremy Smith

A man wielding a machete stormed a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and attacked multiple people before he was killed by police, authorities said on Thursday.

The suspect was the only one killed. Nobody inside the Nazareth restaurant and deli said they knew him, according to police.

"[He] immediately began swinging a machete at customers and employees inside," Sgt. Rich Weiner with the Columbus Police Department said. "There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after as soon as he walked in, according to some of the witnesses."

Police have tentatively identified the suspect but would not reveal his name or age, according to a CNN article.

Four people were injured and transported to the hospital.

One who was in critical condition underwent surgery and is now "stable," Weiner said.
