A shooting at an off-campus party near Ball State University in Indiana early Saturday left seven people injured, three of them critically, police said.
It's not clear how many people might have opened fire, but police said one man was in custody. One of the wounded had to be airlifted to a hospital in Indianapolis, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Muncie, Police Chief Joe Winkle told WXIN-TV.
Winkle said it appears the shooting happened after "some kind of confrontation inside the house." Some of the victims were Ball State students, he said.

Police released the identity Saturday of an 18-year-old student who was tackled after reportedly bringing a gun into classroom at an Oregon high school.
The Portland Police Bureau said Angel Granados Dias had been booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on suspicion of possessing a firearm in a public building, attempting to shoot a gun at a school and reckless endangerment.
Authorities say he is a student at Parkrose High School, where he brought the shotgun Friday. Witnesses told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he appeared distraught when he appeared at the door to their government class and pulled the weapon from beneath a long black trench coat, and that a football and track coach who also works security at the school, Keanon Lowe, tackled him before anyone got hurt.
Ahead of Saturday's premiere of an Argentine documentary on abortion, dozens of women demonstrated for abortion rights on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
Women, including the filmmakers and activists seen in the film, waved green handkerchiefs and carried a large banner while walking the Cannes carpet at the premiere of Argentine director Juan Solanas' "Let It Be Law." The documentary depicts Argentina's battle to legalize abortion.
Argentina's Senate last year rejected a bill to legalize abortion, prompting protests in Buenos Aires streets. Green handkerchiefs have come to be symbol of the movement. A modified version of the bill is to be presented to Congress on May 28.
The halt on China's imports of wastepaper and plastic that has disrupted U.S. recycling programs has also spurred investment in American plants that process recyclables.
U.S. paper mills are expanding capacity to take advantage of a glut of cheap scrap. Some facilities that previously exported plastic or metal to China have retooled so they can process it themselves.
And in a twist, the investors include Chinese companies that are still interested in having access to wastepaper or flattened bottles as raw material for manufacturing.
Australia's ruling conservative coalition won a surprise victory in the country's general election on Saturday, defying opinion polls that had tipped the center-left opposition party to oust it from power and promising an end to the revolving door of national leaders.

"I have always believed in miracles," Morrison, 51, told a jubilant Sydney crowd as he claimed victory.

A Mississippi jury has awarded a total of more than $3 million to five African American strippers after a federal judge found the women worked under worse conditions than their white colleagues.
U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate ruled in the discrimination case last year. After a trial that lasted nearly a week on the question of damages, jurors decided Wednesday that the women would split $3.3 million for back pay and past and future suffering.
The attorney for Danny's Downtown Cabaret, Bill Walter, said Friday he will ask Wingate to reduce the award. If Wingate disagrees, Walter said he will appeal.

An alleged serial killer accused of murdering a man in Florida not only owned up to his brutal slaying with gruesome details, he also alluded to other killings he may have done.
As Nicholas Gibson was being led out of a Manhattan courthouse Friday, he was asked if he indeed did kill a 77-year-old man in Miami Beach.
"Yes, with my bare hands," Gibson mouthed to the NBC New York reporter.
When asked why he killed the man on April 30, Gibson simply said, “He wanted to go.”
The 32-year-old was caught by NYPD officers earlier in May as he got off the L train in Manhattan. Gibson also confirmed that a sword was involved in the slaying, saying it was a “big one.”
It's called DIPG, and chances are, it's one of the worst cancers you've never heard of. And it's one that hits children. That's why DIPG Awareness Day — May 17 — has been created.
It's also why a Herndon family is sharing their battle against this terrible illness.
Maddie Hartman had been a normal kindergartner. She especially loved to dance. It all changed over the course of three days in January.
Her daycare called to say Maddie had fallen ill.
"When I got to daycare, I thought my daughter had a stroke," her father, Nathan Hartman, recalled. "The left side of her face was limp; her speech was slurred; her arm would not move. It was almost hanging off body."
First came the sternly worded letters. Then the subpoenas. Now the votes to hold Trump administration officials in contempt of Congress.
As House Democrats plod ahead investigating President Donald Trump, against unprecedented stonewalling by the White House, they are pursuing a long-game strategy that's playing out in the committee rooms, the courthouse and in the court of public opinion. And it's going to take time.
Some Democrats say the administration's blockade is leaving them almost no choice but to open an impeachment inquiry — not necessarily to impeach Trump, but as part of a legal strategy to force the administration to comply with their requests for documents and testimony.

Porn actress Stormy Daniels has agreed to dismiss a lawsuit that accused her former lawyer of colluding with President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to have her deny having an affair with Trump.
A notice to the court on Thursday indicated that Daniels — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — reached an agreement in principle with Cohen to settle the claims and a final agreement with her ex-lawyer, Keith Davidson.
Davidson said the settlement is a "walk-away" and that no money will be exchanged. The lawsuit accused him of being a "puppet" for Trump and secretly working with Cohen to have Daniels appear on Fox News and falsely deny having sex with Trump. The interview never took place.
