TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana State University student accused of shooting another student in a residence hall stairwell after playing dice for money was arraigned Monday on a charge of attempted murder.

Vigo County Judge Michael Lewis ordered Calvin McCauley, 21, of Indianapolis, held without bond during a video hearing. Court records did not show McCauley has hired an attorney.

McCauley is charged with shooting 20-year-old Tevin Moore, also of Indianapolis, in the buttocks on Saturday. Indiana State University Police Chief Joe Newport said Sunday that Moore had surgery to remove a bullet, was doing well and was expected to make a full recovery. A Union Hospital spokesman said Monday that Moore’s family asked that no further information about him be released.

A probable cause affidavit says Moore told police the shooting was the result of gambling. He told police the pair had been “rolling dice.”

Indiana State spokesman Dave Taylor said Monday that McCauley and Moore had been put on “temporary separation” from the university pending outcomes of student disciplinary processes. He said the move was “taken to ensure community safety.”

McCauley faces possible disciplinary action because of the shooting, while Moore faces possible disciplinary action for “other violations of campus rules and regulations,” Taylor said.

McCauley is being held in the Vigo County Jail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.
