Two people were shot and killed on the campus of Central Michigan University Friday morning during an alleged domestic incident, according to the school.
The Detroit Free Press reported that the shooter, who remains on the run, was a sophomore student at the school and the victims were his parents who had come to pick him up for spring break.
Shortly after 9:30 a.m., city officials in Mount Pleasant, Mich., where the school is located, posted on Twitter that there were reports of shots fired at the university's Campbell Hall dorm and advised everyone to take shelter.
At 10:43 a.m., the university posted an update on its Facebook page, confirming the two fatalities and adding that there appear to be no other injuries. However, the campus remained on lockdown as authorities continued to search for the suspect.
City officials said authorities are seeking James Eric Davis, Jr., 19, as a "person of interest" in the case. According to the Detroit Free Press, police said they took Davis to a hospital Thursday night for what was believed to have been a drug-related issue and he was released Friday morning.
Families planning to pick up their students for spring break, which was to begin after the close of classes Friday, were told to report to a nearby hotel instead of the school.
According to the Associated Press, about 23,000 students attend the university, which is 70 miles north of Lansing.
