WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Officials at Purdue University in Indiana say there is no ongoing threat on campus after a shooting was reported in a classroom building.

The university posted a note that people could resume normal activities on the campus.

McClure says police have a person in custody but no details are available.

Television footage shows several law enforcement vehicles around the building on the campus about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
