TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WISH) — Two students involved in a campus shooting have been temporarily removed from Indiana State University, university officials said.

“Immediate, temporary separation of both students from the university has been taken to ensure community safety,” ISU officials said in an email, indicating both the student suspected of firing shots and the one who was injured aren’t welcome at ISU.

Disciplinary action against both students is pending. The student accused in the shooting faces consequences for that, and the victim of the shooting faces disciplinary action due to “violations of campus rules and regulations,” according to ISU.

According to ISU police, Calvin McCauley, 21, of Indianapolis, was arrested Sunday on a preliminary charge of attempted murder.

Investigators said McCauley and the 20-year-old victim knew each other and had spent time together Saturday before the shooting. The shooting happened in a stairwell at Lincoln Quad around 6:30 p.m.
