COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Police have charged a man with four counts of felonious assault in a stabbing spree at an Ohio downtown office building that left four people injured before he was shot on the street by a police officer.

Authorities say a man armed with three knives entered a downtown office building that housed a career college and other offices on Wednesday and stabbed four men, the first an employee of Miami-Jacobs Career College.

The attacker was shot by police after running into the street.

Police said at a Thursday news conference that two of the victims worked for the college, one was a student there and a fourth worked for the attorney general's office. They say two victims and the suspect are in critical condition.
