There were no other injuries.

The campus remains on lockdown while the suspect, named by the university as James Eric Davis Jr, is at large.

Officials in Mount Pleasant, where the campus is located, described the suspect as a black 19-year-old, 5ft 9in tall and wearing yellow jeans and a blue hoodie.

They added: “He is considered armed and dangerous.”

The university’s Student Government Association warned those on campus to “please stay inside and lock your doors” while police scour the campus on foot and with helicopters overhead.

Central Michigan University has about 23,000 students in Mount Pleasant, about 70 miles north of Lansing, the state’s capital.
