Suspect in deadly double shooting on CMU campus in custody

Suspected CMU shooter was hospitalized Thursday for 'drug-related' incident

Campus police came into contact with "the involved individual" the night before the shooting, and took him to a hospital, Klaus said previously.

A 19-year-old Central Michigan University student suspected of killing his parents Friday morning in his dormitory room was taken into custody early Saturday.

The Central Michigan University community breathed a sigh of relief after Davis.

It all started early Friday morning, when police got a series of calls from the residence hall saying shots had been fired on the fourth floor. Though his father was a police officer, CMU is a gun-free zone and only active law enforcement officers are allowed to have guns on campus.

The campus had been locked down for most of the day and students who were planning to leave campus for spring break were forced to stay indoors until police released them late in the afternoon.

Davis Jr. was taken to a local medical center, where his parents picked him up later Friday morning.

It was the nation's 12th school shooting this year.

The university's statement Friday evening said all campus events were being cancelled until further notice.

"The family is in shock and trying to piece everything together", a relative, speaking on condition of anonymity, told CNN.


Davis Sr. was retired from the Illinois National Guard and worked part-time for the Bellwood Police Department.

Davis Jr. was spotted on campus surveillance cameras fleeing the area of Campbell Hall.

The shooting inside the Campbell Hall dormitory happened on the eve of spring break and sparked a lockdown on the campus in Mount Pleasant, Mich., a city about 85 miles from Grand Rapids and 155 miles from Detroit.

No students, faculty or staff were injured in the incident at the dorm building.

CMU is a university of about 25,000 students, located in mid-Michigan. Pleasant. CMU is about 2½ hours northwest of Detroit. Davis Jr.is a sophomore at Central Michigan. "At that point he was released to the hospital staff", Klaus said.

The family returned to the dorms and appeared to be packing up Davis, Jr.'s things when the incident occurred.

The suspect is from Plainfield, Ill., and graduated high school in 2016, according to spokesman Tom Hernandez of the Plainfield School District.

Around 1:15 a.m. Friday, an officer came across Davis, Jr. with packed bags and suitcases, Chief Yeagley said.

The elder Davis was a pillar of the community, which has 20,000 residents, and was beloved by friends and neighbors, said Harvey, Bellwood's mayor. He was headed north, police said. Police say they found no credible threat.
