Indiana University police have one suspect in custody after a stabbing occurred this morning at the Tulip Tree Apartments on the northeast side of campus.

RTV6 reports police arrested the man about four hours after the initial campus alert was issued.

According to the IU online people directory, Shen is an IU student.

Original Post:

Indiana University police say a man who is suspected of stabbing another individual on the Bloomington campus is still at large but no longer poses a threat to anyone on campus.

Just after 4 a.m. the university sent out an alert for everyone on campus to take safe shelter.

The alert was prompted by a fight that broke out at the Tree Apartments on the northeast side of campus, during which one person was injured with a knife.

IU Police said they were looking for two Asian men who fled from the scene, although alerts indicated only one was believed to be armed.

IU gave the “all clear” on campus just before 8 a.m.

The IndyStar reports the man stabbed was a student and is expected to recover.
