Central Michigan shooting: University says 2 dead, suspect at large”

Parents trying to pick up students following a fatal shooting at Central Michigan University are being asked to stay off campus.

Central Michigan University said the two people killed at a campus dormitory were not students, but did not offer further details on their identities. However, the campus remained on lockdown as authorities continued to search for the suspect.

Lt. Larry Klaus said police are searching for James Eric Davis Jr.

Earlier, officials in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, where the college is located, said a suspect was wearing mustard-yellow jeans and a blue hooded sweatshirt and was considered armed and risky. Klaus says they found articles of clothing along railroad tracks, though, so it's unknown what Davis might be wearing now. The deceased are not students and police believe the situation started from a domestic situation.

Sources told the Free Press his parents arrived on campus Friday morning to pick him up for spring break and were shot and killed. "Officers will be going building to building", the university said in a statement.

Klaus said Davis was taken to a local hospital Thursday night with a drug related injury, possibly an overdose, but would not elaborate more.
