According to police, one 20-year-old male student was in the hospital after being stabbed in the back during a fight at a campus apartment at 3:30 a.m. Capt. Laury Flint told The Associated Press that the man was taken to IU Hospital in Bloomington, but did not identify him further. His injuries were not life-threatening.
University spokesman Mark Land said Sunday campus police arrested 21-year-old Kaiyu Lao and 18-year-old Zesen Shen at the Tulip Tree Apartments in Bloomington. Land said campus police charged Shen with intimidation and battery and Lao with intimidation.

That all clear came at approximatley 7 a.m. when school officials tweeted an update indicating police had determined there was no danger to anyone else on campus.
