Two dead at CMU

UPDATE 12:27 p.m.

Police warned the public not to confront a 19-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting two people on Friday at a Central Michigan University residence hall, saying he is considered dangerous and likely still in the area.

Investigators said neither victim was a student and described the shooting as a "family-type domestic situation." Police declined to confirm a Detroit Free Press report citing unnamed sources that said the suspect, James Eric Davis Jr., had fatally shot his parents when they came to pick him up for spring break.

Campus police identified and released a photo of Davis during an afternoon news conference. Lt. Larry Klaus said surveillance video suggests he fled on foot after the 8:30 a.m. shooting at Campbell Hall.


UPDATE 10:22 a.m.

Two people who weren't students were fatally shot at a Central Michigan University residence hall on Friday, prompting officials to put the campus on lockdown as police searched for a 19-year-old suspect described as armed and dangerous, officials said.

Campus police believe the shooting "started from a domestic situation," the university said in a statement. No other injuries were immediately reported. The university, which has about 23,000 students, urged students to take shelter.

The school posted an alert around 9:30 a.m. on social media about shots being fired at Campbell Hall, a dorm on the campus in Mount Pleasant, which is about 70 miles (112.6 kilometres) north of Lansing. An automated phone message from the school also was sent to students.

The shooting occurred on the last day of classes before spring break. Parents who were trying to pick up students were told to stay off campus and go to a local hotel where staff would assist them.
