Purdue University says there's no threat to its main campus after police investigated a report of a shooting at an apartment complex one day after a student was shot dead in a classroom.
A text message sent shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday told students and staff there was a report of shots fired in the area of an apartment building at Purdue Village, which houses students with families.
A follow-up alert sent a short time later said campus police went "door to door reference shots fired. Unable to locate any problem. No ongoing threat to campus."
A shooting in a classroom Tuesday killed 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend, Wis. The suspect, 23-year-old Cody Cousins, has an initial court appearance Thursday on a preliminary charge of murder.
