Bellwood Police Chief Jiminez Allen on Friday called it "a very hard time" for the department. Pleasant police confirmed that they had contact with Davis on Thursday evening related to some kind of unsafe drug interaction and medical situation.

Central Michigan University said on Twitter: "There has been a report of shots fired at Campbell Hall on campus". School officials say police responding to a report of shots fired at a residence hall at the school.

Authorities stand on the campus of Central Michigan University during a search for a suspect, in Mount Pleasant, Mich., Friday, March 2, 2018.

Davis allegedly shot his parents after they picked him up from that hospital Friday morning. Police say his parents had just picked him up from the hospital, where he was taken the day before for suspected drug abuse.

"He should be considered armed and risky", said Klaus, adding that Davis was wearing a black hoodie but had been shedding certain clothes while on the run. On Friday night, CMU announced that the basketball game would be moved to the Northwood University campus in Midland for an 11 AM tipoff and would be played behind closed doors, with no public attendance and no television coverage.

Central Michigan University has about 23,000 students in Mount Pleasant, which is about 70 miles (112.6 kilometers) north of Lansing.

"My sincerest condolences go out to the family of Bellwood Police Officer James Davis Sr and his wife who were shot and killed". Police described the shooting as a "family-type domestic situation" and said the victims were not students. Many parents were coming to campus to pick up students and few classes were being held. His parents might have been picking up their son before spring break, according to Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey.

The entire CMU campus and most of the city of Mt Pleasant, where the university is located, was in lockdown mode while police from local, state and federal agencies searched the area.

Yeagley says when officers determined that person posed no threat, Davis said he was fine and was leaving campus Friday for spring break.

The Bellwood Police Department is in "close communication" with authorities in MI to aid in the investigation and search for the couple's son, a police spokesman said.
