Search Continues For Suspect In Deadly Shooting at Central Michigan University

The Mount Pleasant police and Isabella County Sheriff's Department are assisting university police, officials said.

Two victims who were shot and killed Friday morning at Central Michigan University were identified by the university's police department as James Eric Davis Sr. and Diva Jeneen Davis, the suspect's parents.

The shooting prompted officials to put the campus on lockdown as police searched for a 19-year-old suspect described as armed and risky, officials said.

Jiminez Allen, Bellwood police Chief confirmed that his elder brother worked a part time as a policeman in Bellwood.

Police said officers were in contact with Davis Jr. on Thursday night when he was taken to a hospital due to some sort of bad reaction to drugs. Law enforcement personnel responded and arrested the suspect without incident, university officials said. Police say his parents had just picked him up from the hospital, where he was taken the day before for suspected drug abuse.

More than 100 officers are searching Mount Pleasant, Michigan, for James Eric Davis Jr. Authorities released a photo of the 19-year-old, who had been considered armed and risky. The campus was locked down, and students and staff were told to find shelter.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said, "The priority right now is the safety of those still on campus".

Davis graduated from Plainfield Central High School in 2016 after attending Plainfield South High School for three years, according to Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 spokesman Tom Hernandez.

Officials in Bellwood, Illinois, say the part-time police officer who was shot to death in a Central Michigan University dormitory positively impacted everyone he served with.

CMU Police Lt. Larry Klaus told reporters that his officers "have not had any police assets lay eyes on him, and we have not had any calls from people in the community saying they've seen him", the Detroit Free Press reports.

Police spent much of the day Friday in search of Davis.

Yeagley said that when officers determined that the person posed no threat — and reviewed video from the elevator that showed Davis Jr. and that person laughing — Davis Jr. said he was fine and was leaving campus Friday for spring break. An academic calendar on CMU's website said residence halls on the 23,000 student campus were to close at noon Saturday and reopen at noon March 11.

The university has been on lockdown since, but just after 2 p.m. authorities began shuttling students to a nearby hotel.

The Davises were reportedly picking up their son from his college campus for spring break when the shooting happened. An automated phone message also was sent to students.

The school posted an alert Friday morning on social media about shots being fired at Campbell Hall.
