When fans at a basketball game paint letters across their chests to spell out a word, it's usually the name of their school or its star player, according to Yahoo Sports.



A group of Northwestern students went with something a bit more meaningful Tuesday night when the Wildcats hosted Purdue. They painted themselves to spell out the phrase "Stand With Purdue," a classy gesture referencing the shooting that happened on the Purdue campus earlier in the day.

Yahoo Sports reports a gunman shot and killed 21-year-old Purdue student Andrew Boldt inside the school's electrical engineering building. Suspect Cody Cousins, a 23-year-old fellow electrical engineering teaching assistant, reportedly was arrested after surrendering to police outside the building.
