MOUNT PLEASANT – Central Michigan University’s campus is on lockdown after two people were shot and killed earlier this morning. Central Michigan reported that the two deceased are not students of the university, and police believe the incident started from a domestic situation, according to reports from the university.

Central Michigan University went to its public Facebook page to report shots fired at Campbell Hall around 9:30 a.m. this morning on March 2.

They described suspect James Eric Davis, Jr. as a black male, approximately 19 years old and 5 feet 10 inches, wearing mustard-colored pants and a blue sweatshirt. He is currently at large and suspected of being armed and dangerous.

Students are advised to stay behind locked doors and avoid leaving buildings they are currently in, as well as avoiding walking outside until given further instructions.

Central Michigan recommends that others en route to the campus stay away until the suspect has been apprehended. Families and friends of students on campus are directed to go to Comfort Inn at 2424 S. Mission St. where staff will be on site to offer support.
