MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — Police say two people who aren’t students have been fatally shot at a residence hall at Central Michigan University.
The school says police believe the Friday morning shooting “started from a domestic situation.” Investigators are searching for a 19-year-old suspect who is considered to be armed and dangerous.
The school is urging students to take shelter. It also says no other injuries have been reported.
The school posted an alert around 9:30 a.m. on its Facebook page about shots being fired at Campbell Hall. An automated phone message from the school also was sent to students. The shooting occurred on the last day of classes before spring break.

The Latest: Saturday session will take up safety, gun bill
PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — Florida Senate President Joe Negron announced the chamber will hold a rare Saturday session to consider a bill addressing school safety and gun sales.
The bill was scheduled to be heard Friday, but it was postponed so the Senate could keep working behind the scenes to reach an agreement with the House on bill language. Saturday’s session will allow questions on the bill, but a final Senate vote wouldn’t be held until Monday.
The national debate over school safety and gun control has been reignited since the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killed 17 people.
