Breaking news has come about on the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014, that a suspect is in custody after a shooting on the campus of Purdue University. USA Today has reported that not much is known at this time.

CNN reported that the school's official Twitter account posted around 12:30 p.m. EST that there was a "shelter in place" active for the campus after a reported shooting.

UPDATE 1 at 12:52 p.m. EST: Police have cleared the engineering building where the shooting was reported.

The school's website said that the shooting took place in the school's electrical engineering building.

Police have indeed set up a command post near the engineering mall, and they are performing a search of the entire university's campus even though one suspect is in custody.

It is not known at this time if there is more than one suspect involved in the Purdue shooting, and there are no reports of injuries at this time.
