Two dead in shooting in Central Michigan University

COPS have tracked down and arrested a 19-year-old gunman who allegedly shot dead his parents at an American university, campus officials said.

The college campus in the city of Mount Pleasant in central MI was on lockdown hours after the 8:30 a.m shooting, as federal, state and local law enforcement searched for Davis using helicopters and police dogs.

James Eric Davis, Jr. was spotted and reported by someone on a train that was passing through the north end of CMU's campus just after midnight, the site posted shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday.

The suspect in the fatal shooting of two people at Central Michigan University is now in custody, the school said early Saturday.

The victims were identified as Davis' parents, James Eric Davis Sr. and Diva Jeneen Davis.

There have been reports of shots fired at a residence hall on Central Michigan University's campus.

Man fatally shoots himself in head in front of White House
The Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department was the lead investigative organization for this shooting, supported by the U.S. No members of the First Family were present at the White House on Saturday when Burgess shot himself, authorities said.

He was described by the CMU Police as a 5-foot-10 African-American man, weighing around 135 pounds.

The search was focused on Mount Pleasant neighborhoods near campus.

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

Campus police identified and released a photo of Davis during an afternoon news conference.

The shooting happened on a day when parents were arriving to pick up students for the beginning of a week-long spring break. We will not stop until we have caught this person.

"He should be considered armed and unsafe", campus police Lt. Larry Klaus said.

SWAT teams have been going up and down Mount Pleasant streets all day talking to people about what they've seen and looking for suspect James Davis Jr.

Former Central Michigan quarterback Shane Morris has been training in Miami, Florida since late December, but he remains a Chippewa. The gunman was "at large", according to school officials.

The Davis family is from Plainfield, Illinois, about 38 miles southwest of Chicago. The police took him to McLaren Central Michigan hospital in Mount Pleasant, Michigan and handed him over to the medical staff.

A student, Tyler Whipple, was driving through campus when his route was blocked by police cars at the scene of the killings. Students are still on lockdown but police say that campus is safe.

All of CMU is locked down and the city of Mount Pleasant said all city buildings and schools are also locked down.

CMU school officials confirmed the reports of a shooting at 9:30 a.m. ET Friday.
