Police are searching for a lone gunman after two people were shot and killed on Central Michigan University’s campus.
CMU sent an automated phone call to all students and faculty with a message saying police were responding to shots fired on the fourth floor of Campbell Hall around 9 a.m. Friday, March 2.
Michigan State Police say two people were shot and killed. Sources told the Free Press that the victims are believed to be the shooter’s parents. The situation is believed to have started from a domestic dispute.
The victims were identified by CMU Police as James Eric Davis Sr. and Diva Janeen Davis, the parents of Davis Jr.
Earlier this afternoon, Illinois State Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch confirmed the deaths in a tweet:
In a tweet from the university, CMU says the suspect is still at large and everyone is advised to take shelter.
The suspect has been identified as James Eric Davis, Jr. He is a black male, around 19 years old, standing 5’10” tall and weighing 135 pounds.
According to the Morning Sun, the suspect may have been released from the hospital just before 8 a.m. today.
The City of Mount Pleasant tweeted this description of the suspect:
The university said there are no additional victims. You can read the full statement here.
Gov. Rick Snyder has been made aware of the situation. He tweeted that he is in contact with MSP, saying in part, “The priority right now is the safety of those still on campus and I thank all first responders involved for their swift action.”
CMU says those planning to come to campus today to pick students up for spring break should stay off campus until further notice.
Around 3 p.m. police started ushering students and staff off campus. They advised people to wait for officers before leaving the building.
