Campus-carry activist at Ohio State shot dead near campus
Tarak Andrew Underiner wanted Ohio college students to have the right to carry guns on campus so they could defend themselves in dangerous situations – say, leaving the library late at night and traveling home alone.
Now he’s the first homicide of 2017 in Columbus.
The Lantern reports that the Ohio State University campus-carry activist was “found dead from gunshot wounds” at a residence near campus when police responded to a shooting around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.
The police report says investigators don’t think the shooting was “random in nature.”
