Student kills parents at USA university

Student kills parents at USA university

Authorities said Davis Jr. was seen on video coming from the parking lot to his dorm with a gun that was registered to his father.

Davis, Jr., states his cousin is picking him up the next morning for spring break and that he is going back to his room to sleep.

The student's parents traveled from the Chicago area to the Mount Pleasant campus early Friday after police called his mother to tell her about her son, Yeagley said.

A Central Michigan University student suspected of fatally shooting his parents in a dormitory has been charged with murder.

Harvey said that he would not comment on the allegations against James Jr., since the incident is still under investigation.

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

The university identified the suspected shooter as James Eric Davis, "a black male, approximately 19 years of age".

A relative told CNN: "The family is in shock and trying to piece everything together".

A motive for the shooting is not yet clear. But it came early Saturday after someone reporting seeing him on or near campus, the university said.

Central Michigan University officials said the shooting stemmed from a "domestic" incident and later identified the two dead as Diva Davis and James Davis Sr. - the parents of the suspected gunman.

19-year-old James Eric Davis, Jr. was arrested after CMU Police received a tip from a railroad employee.


The shooting at Campbell Hall occurred on a day when parents were arriving to pick up students for the beginning of a weeklong spring break. "I just had a beer with him last week".

CMU athletic director Michael Alford said in a release that the game will be rescheduled, with details still to be determined.

The Central Michigan University community breathed a sigh of relief after Davis. A train operator had called police to alert them of a man standing on the tracks around midnight.

"The officer said we had some suspicion it might be drugs, does he have a drug history?"

"He should be considered armed and unsafe", Klaus said of Davis Jr.

The Davis family was from Plainfield Illinois. Davis Jr. graduated from Central High School in 2016, said Tom Hernandez, a spokesman for Plainfield School District 202. "I did not see this 25 years ago". He was an "outstanding officer", who was "loved by all", Harvey said.


But, Davis said, REI's move also seemed to be a new twist because it shows how companies are being drawn into issues that aren't directly related to their businesses.
