At approximately 12:45 a.m. on May 18, the Muncie Police Department — along with assistance from the Ball State University police department — responded to an off-campus, private residence located in the 2400 block of West Euclid Avenue, which is located about five blocks from campus. Seven people were reported to have been shot. A shooter has been apprehended and the individual is not a Ball State student.
