Ashton girl heard gun shots

Posted: Friday, Jan 24th, 2014

WEST LAYFAYETTE, Ind. — What started out as an ordinary Tuesday for Ashton native, Grace Kennay, this week took an unexpected turn of events just after noon.

Kennay, along with classmates were attending a class in the Electrical Engineering Building when an armed gunman entered the building and shot and killed a fellow teaching assistant, Andrew Boldt.

Cody Cousins was taken into custody shortly after the shooting and is being held without bond.

“The shooting took place in the basement,” said Kennay, a junior engineering student at Purdue. “I was in the classroom almost directly above it. We heard what we thought might be gun shots.”
