LOOK: Northwestern students paint chests in support of Purdue

By Matt Norlander | Staff Writer

The Purdue Boilermakers have traveled to Evanston, Ill., to play Northwestern tonight, and in the wake of the shooting on Purdue's campus Tuesday, NU students have made a gesture in support of the Boilermakers. Pretty powerful picture there.

This comes hours after one person was reportedly killed by a gunman, who later surrendered to police.

Via CBS News:

The suspect, identified as engineering student Cody Cousins, 23, surrendered to a police officer within minutes of the attack at the Electrical Engineering Building, Purdue Police Chief John Cox said.

The victim was identified as Andrew Boldt, 21, a senior who was also a teaching assistant from West Bend, Wis.

Cox said the shooter apparently targeted Boldt, but investigators were still working on a motive.

Purdue is 13-5 and riding a three-game winning streak. Northwestern is 9-10 and coming off its biggest win of the season, a road victory against Indiana on Saturday.
