WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (CNN) — A gunman shot and killed another man at Purdue University’s electrical engineering building Tuesday before surrendering to a police officers outside, the Indiana school’s police chief told reporters.
Purdue Police Chief John Cox said the shooting at the school of about 30,000 undergraduates occurred at about noon Central Time. Officials asked students throughout the campus to stay indoors until police gave the all-clear a little more than an hour later.
Cox said it appeared that the suspect had just had one target in mind. He left the building right after the shooting, and a city police officer arrested him, Cox said.
“This individual seemed to have had intentions for the decedent,” he said.
No information about a motive was released. Cox said the suspect made no statement to investigators and was offering “little to no cooperation.”
