WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue University says a football player was wounded in an off-campus shooting over the weekend.

West Lafayette police say 20-year-old Andrew Chelf of Southlake, Texas, suffered a single gunshot wound to the torso about 3 a.m. Sunday. The sophomore safety was hospitalized for treatment.

Police Capt. David Van Vactor tells the (Lafayette) Journal & Courier investigators believe someone shot Chelf but that no arrests were immediately made.

The Purdue athletic department said in a statement it was grateful Chelf was recovering and had offered assistance to his family.

Chelf played little during his first two seasons at Purdue, but had seven tackles in the Boilermakers’ spring game the day before the shooting.
