WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University has posted online a surveillance video that college newspaper editors say shows a staff photographer being roughed up by police near where a student had been fatally shot and stabbed.
Purdue posted the video Thursday on YouTube after the Tippecanoe County Prosecutor's Office gave its approval.
The video is available here.
Purdue said it received court authorization Wednesday to make the video publicly available if prosecutors approved.
The incident occurred Jan. 21, after Cody Cousins, 23, of Warsaw, Indiana, entered a basement classroom filled with electrical engineering students and allegedly stabbed and shot 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend, Wisconsin. Cousins pleaded guilty to murder Thursday.
Police said photographer Michael Takeda ignored officers' commands and attempted to flee. The video shows him surrendering and being detained.
