Son arrested for killing parents at Central Michigan University

Police in camouflage uniforms searched house-to-house near the campus of Central Michigan University for a student suspected of fatally shooting two people at a dormitory and then fleeing into the neighborhood.

The younger Davis is a sophomore at Central Michigan University, officials said.

Police said cameras located in the common area and exits of the dorm captured Davis leaving the dorm, heading north and running along train tracks.

The university's emergency communication system says that the 2 deceased are not students at CMU and that police believe the shooting started from a domestic situation. More than 100 officers from multiple agencies were still searching for Davis Jr.as of 9:30 p.m. Friday evening.

Dispatchers have confirmed that the shooter, James Eric Davis Jr.is now in police custody.

Davis allegedly shot his parents after they picked him up from that hospital Friday morning. He was wearing mustard yellow jeans and a blue hoodie when last seen. Officers spoke to his mother, told her what they observed, and police say she expressed concern about possible drug use.

There were no other injuries in the shooting, according to the school's website.

At an afternoon press conference, cops said they believed Davis was within the city limits.

Parents trying to pick up students at the school were being asked to stay off campus.

Lawrence, one of Hollywood's most popular and highest-paid actresses, was last seen in Darren Aronofsky's " Mother! ". Death Wish skewed male (57 percent), and played even older than Red Sparrow , with 30% of ticket buyers 35 and older.

But police say they received a call about Davis Thursday night that led to him being taken to the hospital for a "drug-related" incident.

The gunman has been identified by local police as James Eric, 19, who is now on the run and said to be armed and unsafe. "This has been a tragic day for Central Michigan University", said CMU President George Ross.

All of Isabella County's schools were on lockdown, according to the Mount Pleasant Morning Sun, which reports that state police sent a tactical team and a helicopter to look for the suspect.

Parents arriving to pick up students before spring break were redirected to a hotel near campus while police continued the search for Davis.

Halie Byron, 20, said she locked herself in her off-campus house, about a 10-minute walk from the dorm.

The university, with roughly 23,000 students, is about two hours northwest of Detroit.

"There's so much easy access". Visitors also weren't being allowed to enter.

All CMU campus events have been canceled until further notice and classes for Saturday, March 3 have also been canceled.
