BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — One person was arrested Sunday morning in connection with a stabbing that injured an Indiana University student at a campus apartment building, school officials said.
University police arrested 18-year-old Zesen Shen at about 8 a.m. Sunday at the Tulip Tree Apartments in Bloomington, IU spokesman Mark Land said in a news release.
Police said Shen, another suspect and a 20-year-old IU student were in the apartment's parking lot around 3:30 a.m., Land said. Witnesses told campus police the three were there "to resolve a dispute when the suspects began chasing victim and wounded him with a knife," Land said.
University police Lt. Craig Munroe told the Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1ckrtoX) the student was stabbed in the back. The 20-year-old was taken to IU Health hospital in Bloomington with an injury that isn't life-threatening, Land said.
Campus police are still looking for the second suspect, and the investigation is continuing, Land said.
The incident prompted university officials earlier Sunday to tell students to seek shelter behind locked doors. The school gave students the all clear around 7 a.m. CDT.
