MOUNT PLEASANT, Michigan — Two people were fatally shot Friday after a gunman opened fire at Campbell Hall dormitory at Central Michigan University, campus police said. Campus police identified James Eric Davis Jr. as a suspect in the shootings.
Last seen wearing mustard yellow jeans and a blue hoodie, the 19-year-old man is still at large and considered armed and dangerous, according to police.
The shooting happened Friday morning on the dorm’s fourth floor.
The deceased are not students, and campus police said they believe the shootings rose from a domestic dispute. There were no other injuries.
Officials at McLaren Central Michigan hospital said the school was on lockdown.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said on Twitter that the “priority right now is the safety of those still on campus.”
The Mount Pleasant police and Isabella County Sheriff’s Department are assisting university police, officials said.
Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives are a route to assist in the investigation, according to a tweet.
The university, which has roughly 20,000 students, is about two hours northwest of Detroit.
The shooting is the 12th school shooting this year after Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.
