MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - The Latest on a shooting at Central Michigan University (all times local):
 
12:30 p.m.
 
Police are asking for the public's help as they search for a 19-year-old man suspected of killing two people at Central Michigan University.
 
The shooting occurred in a residence hall Friday morning on the campus in Mount Pleasant. Police say neither victim was a student.
 
Lt. Larry Klaus says police are searching for James Eric Davis Jr. Klaus says surveillance footage shows the young man fled on foot. He's considered armed and dangerous.
 
Klaus says Davis was wearing a black hoodie but apparently has been shedding certain clothes since the shooting around 8:30 a.m. His photo was released to the public. Anyone who sees him is asked not to confront him, but to call 911.
 
Klaus says Davis was taken to a hospital Thursday night by campus police because of a drug-related health problem, possibly an overdose.
 
He didn't release the names of the victims.

Parents trying to pick up students following a fatal shooting at Central Michigan University are being asked to stay off campus.
 
The school says parents are being told to go to a local hotel in Mount Pleasant where staff would assist them.

One student says she locked herself in her off-campus house that's about a 10-minute walk from the residence hall. She says it's "scary thinking about how easy a shooter can come into a college campus anywhere."
 
The shooting occurred on the last day of classes before spring break.
