Authorities are still working on a motive in Tuesday's deadly shooting on the Purdue University campus.

Police arrested Cody Cousins, a 23-year-old Engineering student, for shooting a fellow Engineering student and teaching assistant in a building's basement. That student was identified as 21-year-old Andrew Boldt.

Witnesses say the suspect walked out of the building and surrendered to police. While detectives don't have a motive yet, they believe only the victim was targeted.

Cousins is scheduled in court tomorrow.
