Purdue University Reports Shooting on Campus

Tuesday, 21 Jan 2014 03:30 PM

 

Police have a person in custody following a reported shooting at Purdue University in Indiana.

A Twitter post from the university says the shooting happened Tuesday at the electrical engineering building on the school's campus in West Lafayette, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

Purdue University Provost Timothy Sands has confirmed that there has been one fatality. Police have further confirmed that both the suspect and the deceased are males.

Further posts say police have a person in custody, though no details have been released. The university says it told people to take shelter and has cleared the building.

A spokesman couldn't immediately be reached. About 40,000 students attend the school.

Television footage shows a fire truck and several law enforcement vehicles around the building, which is across from the building housing President Mitch Daniels' office.

Purdue employee Chris Adam told WRTV that the university sent a text alert telling those on campus to take shelter.
