Parents Gunned Down By Their Son On College Campus

Suspect in deadly double shooting on CMU campus in custody

Police say the firearm that James Eric Davis, Jr. allegedly used to shoot and kill his parents was registered to his father, James Eric Davis, Sr.

The Davis family is from Plainfield, Illinois, about 35 miles south west of Chicago. A Central Alert issued at about 10 a.m. March 3 stated all campus operations had now resumed. Students presenting proper identification are being allowed to return to their dorm rooms. 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.

Police captured James Eric Davis Jr., 19, a CMU sophomore, and he is now in custody.

Police said in a press conference at 4:00 p.m. that they have not had any sightings of Davis, nor have they received any reports of sightings. Parents who were trying to pick up students were told instead to go to a local hotel where staff would assist them while the manhunt was ongoing.

He said police had first come into contact with Davis Jr. on Thursday morning when he came running into a community police officer's office in his dorm "very frightened" and "not making a lot of sense". He should not be approached and should be considered armed and risky. He was wearing a hoodie but had been shedding certain clothes while on the run.

Police released a photo of Davis Jr after the shooting and urged the public to call 911 if they saw him but warned that he should not be confronted.

Authorities said it took two minutes for police to arrive and take him into custody without incident.

More than 100 officers from multiple agencies joined in the search for him, campus police said.
