WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University President Mitch Daniels is back on campus after cutting short a trip to Colombia over the fatal shooting of a student in a classroom.

Daniels tells WTHR-TV (http://bit.ly/KIsJoZ ) he wants to be with as many students as he can and begin a review of how the university handled the shooting Tuesday.

Daniels was in Colombia on a fact-finding mission on behalf of the university. He cut the trip short by a day and a half to return early.

Twenty-one-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend, Wis., died in the shooting. The suspect, 23-year-old Cody Cousins, has an initial court appearance Thursday on a preliminary charge of murder.
