Student who allegedly killed both parents at Central Michigan University now in custody

The suspect in a deadly shooting at Central Michigan University Friday is now in police custody, authorities said.
According to dispatchers, James Eric Davis, Jr., suspected of killing his parents in a dorm room on the university's campus, was captured by police around 12:50 a.m. Saturday.According to the school's emergency communication, Davis was seen and reported by an individual on a train passing through the north end of campus just after midnight. Police responded and arrested him without incident.
The shooting occurred around 8:30 a.m. at Campbell Hall, a residence hall at Central Michigan, which is about 70 miles north of Lansing. Lt. Larry Klaus of the campus police department described the shooting as a “family-type domestic situation.”
Davis ran from the scene following the shooting, according to authorities.
Surveillance cameras appeared to show Davis leaving the dorm and heading north along train tracks. Pieces of clothing were found along the tracks.
Campus police spoke with Davis on Thursday night, Klaus told reporters during a news conference.
"At some point in the evening he was transported to McLaren Hospital due to what the officers believed may be a drug-related type incident, an overdose or a bad reaction to drugs. At that point he was released to the hospital staff," he said.
Friday was the last day of class before spring break at the campus of about 25,000 students. The university is located about 2 1/2 hours northwest of Detroit.
