Purdue suspends classes following shooting

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University is suspending classes through Wednesday after campus shooting in which one person was killed.

The university called off classes Tuesday afternoon, hours after officials say the shooting happened about noon in a basement classroom of the Electrical Engineering Building on the West Lafayette campus.

The campus police chief says it appears the gunman targeted the male victim and didn’t attack anyone else before surrendering to a police officer minutes later.

Purdue also scheduled a campus candlelight vigil for 8 p.m. Tuesday. The university said special counseling services would be available for students Tuesday night at several sites around campus.
