One person is dead after Purdue University reported a shooting on its campus in West Lafayette, Ind. One male suspect is in custody, Purdue Police said during a live press conference on The Indy Channel. Police believe there is only one suspect. They said he is not being cooperative and declined to identify him or the victim.

The university posted an alert on its website earlier:

"A shooting has been reported in the electrical engineering building on Tuesday (Jan. 21) at Purdue University. One person is in custody. Police have cleared the building and are continuing to search the area, and people should remain sheltered in place until further notice."

The notice has since been lifted.
