Search Continues For Suspect In Deadly Shooting at Central Michigan University

Central Michigan University shooting

University officials announced at 3:00 pm (2000 GMT) that students were finally being escorted out of buildings by police.

He was sought in connection with the shooting deaths of, who were later learned to be, his parents, James Eric Davis, Sr., and Diva Jeneen Davis, both 47 years old, early in the morning at Campbell Hall in The Towers complex on campus.

Bellwood Police Chief Jiminez Allen released a statement Friday night praising Davis Sr.'s work.

Police said the teen had been taken to a hospital Thursday night for what appeared to be an "overdose or bad reaction" to drugs.

More than 100 police officers, some heavily armed in camouflage uniforms, had searched neighbourhoods near Central Michigan University following the shooting.

The school says police believe the Friday morning shooting "started from a domestic situation". The university says the suspect is still at large, and police are urging students to take shelter. James Eric Davis Jr. was arrested after someone saw him on train tracks shortly after midnight.

He is considered armed and unsafe.

A university teacher said she was in a parking lot on campus when she heard what sounded like gunshots. In another tweet, the CMU Student Government Association advised the students to stay inside locked doors and warned them to not "walk around the campus".

Students received an alert Friday just after 9 a.m. about a report of shots fired on campus.

The National Weather Service is also predicting severe beach erosion for areas of the Eastern Shore and unsafe marine conditions. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent with new precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

More than 100 police officers spent the afternoon and evening searching the Mount Pleasant area for James Eric Davis, who authorities described as armed and risky, after he allegedly shot his mother and father, an IL police officer.

The victims were from the Chicago suburb of Bellwood where James Davis Sr. was a part-time police officer for 20 years who assisted the department on special occasions.

Friends and teachers who knew the suspect personally, said they could not imagine he was capable of such a crime. The parents' bodies were found inside Campbell Hall, but they could not confirm whether Davis was a resident there. "We had the campus on lockdown".

Western Michigan University's athletic director said all members of the men's basketball team, which was in Mt.

The search focused on Mount Pleasant neighborhoods near campus.

Police on Saturday continued searching for James Eric Davis Jr., who allegedly ran from campus following the shooting at Campbell Hall. An automated phone message was sent to students.

Yeagley says when officers determined that person posed no threat, Davis said he was fine and was leaving campus Friday for spring break.

With one day left before residence halls were scheduled to close for spring break, parents seeking out their children were told to go to a staging area at a nearby hotel.
