CAUGHT: CMU student wanted for fatal shooting of parents arrested

Police say two people who aren't students have been fatally shot at a residence hall at Central Michigan University.

"CMU police had contact with the suspect Thursday night, Klaus said, explaining officers responded to complaints of a "difficult student" in the residence hall".

He was discharged from the hospital Friday morning, according to Lt. Larry Klaus of the CMU Police Department.

One student who said he knew the suspect told the campus newspaper, Central Michigan Life, that Davis Jr. was a "quiet kid." .

University President George E. Ross said the shooting had left the campus and surrounding community traumatized.

James Eric Davis Jr is listed as a sophomore (second-year student) in Central Michigan University's student directory.

The incident is coming about two weeks after a similar attack at a local high school in Florida when a 19-year-old student who was expelled from the institution opened fire killing no less than 17 people and injured 14 others.

They lived in Plainfield, a suburb of Chicago, according to The Associated Press, and arrived on campus Friday to pick up their son for the beginning of the school's spring break. James Davis Sr. was a police officer in Bellwood, Illinois, Emanuel Chris Welch, an Illinois state lawmaker, said in a post on Twitter.

"We will not comment beyond that out of respect for the family", Hernandez said.

Wall Street drops: Aus market to open lower
USA markets have had worse days - this week, in fact - so a 71 point fall for the Dow could be counted as an acceptable outcome. The Dow gave up 4.3%, its biggest monthly drop in more than two years and paring its advance over the past 12 months to 20%.

"[He was] a positive and peaceful individual to not only me and my teammates, but to everyone we met together", Turner said.

Emanuel Chris Welch, a representative in the IL legislature, identified Davis an officer of the Bellwood Police Department.

The university's school of humanities and behavioural sciences tweeted: "Please avoid Campbell Hall until we hear more information".

Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey told reporters Friday evening that he grew up with James Davis Sr., who had been a family friend and a part-time police officer with the department for more than 20 years.

The early morning incident put the campus into lockdown - trapping students in classrooms and dormitories until mid-afternoon.

Central Michigan University has about 23,000 students in Mount Pleasant, which is about 70 miles (112.6 kilometers) north of Lansing. An automated phone message also was sent to students.

The shooting occurred on the last day of classes before a weeklong break.

Police on Saturday continued searching for James Eric Davis Jr., who allegedly ran from campus following the shooting at Campbell Hall. She says it's "scary thinking about how easy a shooter can come into a college campus anywhere".

Mt. Pleasant was on edge all day as some stores closed, offices locked their doors, workers were told to stay away from windows and investigators searched railroad beds, sheds, ditches, empty buildings and knocked on doors of homes, offices and businesses.
