A Purdue shooting was deadly on Tuesday at noon. One male suspect was taken into custody. The individual who was shot and killed in the Purdue University shooting was reportedly targeted by the gunman, according to a Yahoo! News report on Tuesday.

Reportedly, Andrew Boldt, 21, was shot and killed by Cody Cousins, 23. Boldt was a teacher’s assistant in a classroom in the basement of Purdue University’s electrical engineering building.

After shooting Boldt, Cousins quickly left the building which indicates that Boldt was his only target in the shooting. Cousins was taken into custody by police without incident after leaving the building. Tippacanoe County jail is where Cousins is now being held. Thus far, there has been no motive given for the shooting.

When the shooting was realized, the University’s officials immediately sent out text alerts to students, faculty and staff throughout the campus to take cover as police searched the area and investigated. It was determined that the campus was safe, and only the electrical building was closed after the incident. There will be a candlelight vigil at the Purdue University campus on Tuesday night, and classes will be suspended on Wednesday.
