Suspect in Central Michigan shooting death used gun registered to dad, police say

A suspect accused of shooting and killing his parents at Central Michigan University has been arrested, the university announced early Saturday. 

Central Michigan’s Emergency Communication says on its website that James Eric Davis Jr. was arrested without incident early Saturday. They say the suspect was seen on a train passing through the north end of campus shortly after midnight.


After the shooting, authorities identified the suspect as Davis Jr. Sources told the Detroit Free Press his parents arrived on campus Friday morning to pick him up for spring break and were shot and killed in a fourth-floor dorm room. He listed as a sophomore in CMU’s student directory. 

Central Michigan University police announced Saturday the gun Davis Jr. used was registered to his father, a police officer. Davis Jr. entered building carrying the firearm after his dad was already inside the room.


The parents were identified by the school Friday evening as James Eric Davis, Sr., and Diva Jeneen Davis.

Police said officers had contact with the student late Thursday and took him to a local hospital, where he was turned over to the medical staff for what police say may have been some sort of drug-related issue.
