Police Shoot Stabbing Suspect Outside College

*White Van Blocks Shooting*

Columbus police releases new details after a suspect allegedly stabs four males in the Downtown Continental Centre Wednesday. CPD identified the stabbing suspect as 37-year-old John W. Mallett during a 2 p.m. press conference Thursday.

Allegedly armed with three knives, Mallett is accused of going on a stabbing spree before an officer shot him several times on a Downtown street. It is alleged Mallett stabbed Jean Michel Desir, Gerald Dowe Jr., Donte' Dunnagan and Jeffrey Maloon inside Miami Jacobs Career College before 12:40 p.m. Desir is a Miami Jacobs student and is in stable condition at Grant Medical Center.

Dowe, a Miami Jacobs employee, was treated and released Wednesday. Dunnagan, also a Miami Jacobs employee, is in critical condition at Grant. Maloon is an employee of the Ohio Attorney General’s office and is in critical condition at Grant.

CPD identified the officer who fired her service weapon on Mallett as Officer Deborah Ayers. She is a 15-year veteran of the department and has served in her current patrol assignment for 1-1/2 years.
She received minor injuries and is doing OK, Weiner said.

Columbus police's Sgt. Rich Weiner says Mallett has been charged with four counts of felonious assault. Columbus police said the stabbings appear to be random right now and there is no apparent link between Mallett and the college or Mallett and his alleged victims. Mallett moved to Columbus from Nashville, Tenn., only about a month ago. He doesn't have any prior criminal record in Columbus.

He remains in critical condition at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center.
