UPDATED: Active Shooter at Central Michigan University


Central Michigan University police Lt. Larry Klaus identified the suspect as James Eric Davis Jr., a black man who was 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighed 135 pounds. Klaus said Davis was last seen wearing a dark hoodie but it wasn’t known whether he changed his clothes because several items of clothing were found in the area.

The university identified the two dead as James Davis Sr. and Diva Davis. Records show they’re from Plainfield, Illinois. Central Michigan University police said James Eric Davis, Jr. fatally shot his parents who had arrived at the dorm to pick him up from school, adding that the killings stemmed from a “domestic situation,” CBS Detroit reports. Davis’ father, James Davis, Sr., was a part-time police officer at the Bellwood Police Department in Illinois, according to reports.

The shooting happened on a day when parents were arriving to pick up students for the beginning of a week-long spring break.


Original Story Below:


Reports of shots fired in Mount Pleasant, Michigan at a dorm on the campus of Central Michigan University.

The news is still sketchy as the story is just breaking but reports are that 2 people have been killed and the shooter is still at large.

Here’s what we know thus far:

  • Michigan State Police confirm two people have been shot on campus and a suspect is on the loose.
  • Police are actively searching for the shooting suspect.
  • According to the city of Mount Pleasant, the suspect is a 19-year-old black man wearing mustard yellow jeans and a blue hoodie. He is described about 5 feet 9 inches tall.
  • Schools in the area are in lockdown, according to state police.
  • The university and all city buildings are on lockdown.
  • Students tell ClickOnDetroit and Local 4 that they received a robo call from the university alerting them about the shooting and that the campus is on lockdown with classes canceled.
  • The Central Michigan University Student Government Association is advising students to stay inside and lock their doors — “Do not leave the building you are in or walk around campus,” reads a tweet from the association.

You can hear the robo-call sent out from Central Michigan University to their students and on campus employees below:

The University declined to share any extra information with local or national news outlets, but did say that they were monitoring the situation and that they would provide updates as they became available.

It does seem like the “active shooting” aspect of the attack is over and that now the local authorities are hunting the criminal who shot two people at Central Michigan.

If you are in the area, please be aware that the suspect is considered armed and dangerous and authorities are requesting that people in the immediate vicinity stay indoors and shelter in place.

The situation is still fluid and very dangerous, we’ll do our best to keep you updated via this post.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
