WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Police have a person in custody following a reported shooting at Purdue University in Indiana.

A Twitter post from the university says the shooting happened Tuesday at the electrical engineering building on the school's campus in West Lafayette, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

Further posts say police have a person in custody, though no details have been released.

The university says it told people to take shelter and have cleared the building as the area is searched. A university spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for details, including whether anyone was hurt.

Television footage from the scene shows a fire truck and several law enforcement vehicles around the building. The building is in the middle of campus and across from the administration building housing President Mitch Daniels' office
