   BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University officials say two students have been charged in connection with a stabbing that injured another student at a campus apartment building.
 
   University spokesman Mark Land said Sunday campus police arrested 21-year-old Kaiyu Lao and 18-year-old Zesen Shen at the Tulip Tree Apartments in Bloomington.
 
   Land said campus police charged Shen with intimidation and battery and Lao with intimidation.
 
   Police say a 20-year-old male student was stabbed in the apartment's parking lot during a fight that began at about 3:30 a.m. Land said the student was taken to IU Health and the injury wasn't life-threatening.
 
   The incident prompted university officials earlier Sunday to tell students to seek shelter behind locked doors. The school tweeted an "all clear" around 7 a.m. CDT.

   Bloomington Police said the initial fight was caused by fight over a woman.

   Court documents report an 18-year-old suspect argued with the 20-year-old victim during several phone calls after the suspect's girlfriend returned to her apartment building with the victim four hours later than expected.

   Police said the suspect got a meat cleaver and had a friend go with him to confront the victim.
