At least seven people were shot at a house party near Ball State University early Saturday, authorities said.

The victims include at least three people who suffered life-threatening injuries, Muncie Police Chief Joe Winkle said.

Four others suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. The partygoers included students and locals, he said.

Ball State University Police said on Twitter they are investigating the shooting on 2400 block of Euclid Ave.

Authorities say an argument broke out among the partygoers which resulted in someone pulling a gun and started shooting.

A suspect is being questioned, but has not been arrested. Investigators aren’t sure if the person they’re talking to was the only shooter, but Chief Winkle told WTHR, his officers aren’t looking for any other suspects at this point.

The shooting was about a three-minute drive to the University. The wounded were transported to a hospital in Muncie, Indiana, Police Lt. Ryan Trissel said.

The university said there was no ongoing threat to campus.

“Resume normal activities,” it said on Twitter.
