EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Purdue and Northwestern have observed a moment of silence before their basketball game hours after a shooting on the Boilermakers’ campus.

An engineering student opened fire inside a basement classroom at Purdue, killing a teaching assistant earlier Tuesday.

The Boilermakers were not on campus when the shooting occurred. They made the 140-mile trip from West Lafayette, Ind., on Monday because there was snow in the forecast and there were no classes due to Martin Luther King Day.
