Vice President-elect Mike Pence labels Ohio State violence as ‘a tragic attack'

NEW YORK CITY -- Republican Vice President-elect Mike Pence says his team's "hearts go out to the families of those affected" by a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University.

Authorities say a student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday before he was shot to death by a campus police officer. Police are investigating whether it was a terrorist attack. Eleven people were hurt.

Pence calls the episode "a tragic attack." He spoke in New York at Trump Tower, where President-elect Donald Trump lives.

Pence says their "prayers are with" all the victims and first responders.
