There was a shooting at Purdue University this afternoon and one person is dead.
That’s the bad news, the good news is that the shooter is in custody. According to officials this was NOT an “active shooter” situation where people were being randomly targeted. The shooter apparently was after the victim.
The other good news is that it appears that there were police on the scene almost immediately, it will be interesting to understand that dynamic.
Here’s the Chief of Police with the announcement.
We will update when we have more information.
You can also expect calls for bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. We’ll be covering those as well.
