Indiana U. given all clear; still seeking suspect

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University students were told Sunday morning they were no longer at risk, though campus police were still searching for a suspect in a stabbing that injured one man.

University police were called to the Tulip Tree apartments about 3:30 a.m. Sunday and found a man with stab wounds, Capt. Laury Flint told The Associated Press. The victim is an IU student, university police Lt. Craig Munroe told the Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1ckrtoX ), and was stabbed in the back after a fight.

"We do have one victim at IU Hospital," Flint said, adding she did not know the severity of the wounds. She did not identify him further.

A message left for a spokeswoman with the Indiana University Health Hospital system was not immediately returned early Sunday.

Just before 7 a.m. CDT, the university tweeted on its official account that police had given the all clear, determining there was no danger to those on campus. Flint said a lockdown was not ordered earlier Sunday, but that everyone should heed the call to seek shelter as a safety measure.

Munroe told the Star that the victim was likely "targeted," and that police believe only one person was armed with a knife.
