(AP) Indiana University police say students are no longer at risk after urging them earlier Sunday to seek shelter, but that no suspect has been found.


Police said earlier Sunday that a person was at large after a man was found stabbed at an on-campus apartment complex at about 3:30 a.m.


IU-Bloomington Police Lt. Craig Munroe told the Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1ckrtoX) that the victim is an IU student and was stabbed in the back after a fight. Capt. Laury Flint told The Associated Press that the man was taken to IU Hospital in Bloomington, but did not identify him further.


The school tweeted just before 7 a.m. CDT that police determined there is no danger to those on campus.


Munroe told the Star that the victim was likely "targeted."


THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.


Indiana University police urged all of those on the Bloomington campus to seek shelter behind locked doors early Sunday, saying someone with a knife was believed at large after a person was found stabbed at an on-campus apartment complex.


"An individual armed with a knife is at large on the Bloomington campus," Capt. Laury Flint with the university police told The Associated Press early Sunday morning. "If you are on campus take safe shelter in the nearest available room, lock the door if possible and remain in place until the police or a campus administrator know to you gives the all-clear."


She said university officers got a call to the Tulip Tree apartments about 3:30 a.m. Sunday and found a male victim with stab wounds who was subsequently taken to the university hospital. Flynt declined to give further details of what had happened and did not identify the wounded person further.


She said authorities were seeking possible suspects who fled from the apartments.


"We do have one victim at IU Hospital," she said, adding she did not know the severity of the wounds. "The victim is male and that's really all I have at this point. It's still evolving. We have units out investigating all the leads."


She said that while a lockdown was not ordered, all on campus should heed the call to seek shelter as a safety measure. She added numerous officers were on campus conducting a search.


Indiana University tweeted the call to take shelter as an "ALERT" and told those on campus to lock doors and avoid windows. "Stay inside until we give all clear," the tweet said.


A message left for a spokeswoman with the Indiana University Health Hospital system was not immediately returned early Sunday and a dispatcher at its Bloomington hospital said she could release no information.
