Dear Sycamore Community,

ISU Alert: Avoid south side of campus. Units are on scene of a shooting at Highland Quarters. Description of suspect is a black male, grey sweatshirt with black stripe, around 6'-1", unknown direction of travel. All students are advised to avoid this area. If you have any information, please contact the ISU Police Department at 812-237-5555.

The Terre Haute Police have the lead in apprehending the suspect and investigating this tragic situation. The ISU Police Department is assisting. This is an active situation and we must put safety first. Please avoid this area. The University will not get ahead of the TH Police investigation of this matter and will not be issuing any official comment at this time. I ask members of our Sycamore community to refrain from commenting on social media. It is not helpful and could interfere with the investigation. ISU Police and University Communication will provide additional details when it is warranted.

Please join me in sending thoughts and prayers for the victim.
