Early this morning on the Central Michigan University campus, a student shot and killed both of his parents in Campbell Hall, a dorm housing building.

The Broncos who are now staying in Mount Pleasant are safe and accounted for according to Western Michigan Athletic Director Kathy Beauregard.

"He should be considered armed and unsafe", said Klaus, adding that Davis was wearing a black hoodie but had been shedding certain clothes while on the run.

That suspect, James Eric Davis Jr.is on the run, the search is underway and his classmates are trying to make sense of what happened.

The Central Michigan University Police Department has identified the victims in this morning's campus shooting as James Eric Davis, Sr., and Diva Jeneen Davis.

The police was tipped off by an individual who spotted Davis Jr.

The school posted an alert Friday morning on social media about shots being fired at Campbell Hall.

Surveillance cameras appeared to show Davis leaving the dorm and heading north along train tracks.

Police did not disclose what led up to the shooting. More than 100 officers looked for Davis. Police believe that this is a family domestic type incident.

The shooting occurs at Central Michigan University. Parents arriving to pick up students were told to go to a hotel where staff members would assist them.

All planned campus events and activities are cancelled until further notice.

On Thursday night, Klaus said Davis suffered what officers believed was a drug overdose or a bad reaction to drugs and he was taken to a hospital.

He was then released to hospital staff, Klaus said. Officials in Mt. Pleasant city tweeted that the suspect is a black male, armed and risky.

Police say Davis used his father's gun to shoot him.

"It was an isolated incident, but we had two people that were killed in a residence facility".

Classes have been cancelled and students were ordered to shelter in place while police searched for the gunman. It is located about 55 miles west of Saginaw. It contains four-person, single bedrooms and two bathroom suites, and are smoke free, according to the school's website.

Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland have made powerful appeals for change to permissive United States gun laws in the wake of the shooting.
