The suspect in Monday’s Ohio State University attack was an 18-year-old of Somali descent, a federal law enforcement official said.

Investigators have identified the suspect, who lived in the area, but have not publicized his name, the official said. The car used in the attack was registered to a family member.

A US official says the suspect was a legal permanent resident.

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive.
