The shooting occurred in a residence hall Friday morning on the campus in Mount Pleasant. The shooting happened on the dorm's fourth floor. Police say neither victim was a student.

The city of Mount Pleasant, where the university is located, released a photo of Davis.
The victims in the shooting were identified as 48-year-old James Eric Davis, Sr., and 47-year-old Diva Davis. The black man was seen wearing mustard-yellow jeans and a blue hoodie.
Law enforcement officers in heavy tactical gear are scouring the area to find David, who is considered armed and unsafe. Do not approach the suspect. Police found "a number of articles of clothing" as he fled the campus north along railroad tracks, Klaus said.

Court documents suggest that the woman fled Russian Federation where she was wanted for the murder of a 54-year-old woman. Nasyrova allegedly visited the woman at her home in Queens and offered her the cake as a gift.
Davis was considered armed and unsafe and campus police were investigating the incident along with local and state police, according to university officials. Police are asking residents to stay inside at this time.
According to the Morning Sun, the suspect may have been released from the hospital just before 8 a.m. today.
The suspect, 19-year-old James Eric Davis, is considered armed and risky, the school said.
Federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms were sent to the scene in the central MI city of Mount Pleasant to assist local police.
The early morning incident put the campus into lockdown - trapping students in classrooms and dormitories until mid-afternoon - while police conducted an expansive search for the 19-year-old suspected gunman.
"We believe this situation was a domestic-type incident", campus police Lt. Larry Klaus told reporters.
