(MENAFN- Trend News Agency ) Davis Jr., 19, shot and killed his mother and father in the dorm on the northwestern edge of campus at a Michigan college Friday morning, authorities said, leading to an hours-long manhunt that ended with his arrest early Saturday.
It was the nation's 12th school shooting this year.
It's not immediately clear what led to the shooting or why the parents, James Eric Davis Sr., 48, and Diva Jeenen Davis, 47, were on campus in Mount Pleasant, a roughly four-hour drive from their Chicago-area home.
But authorities said the student had an encounter with police hours earlier — on Thursday evening when he was taken to a hospital for what officers believed was a bad reaction to drugs, campus police Lt. Larry Klaus said.
And the parents may have been intending to pick up their son for spring break, said Andre Harvey, mayor of the Chicago suburb of Bellwood, where the elder Davis was a part-time officer.
'The family is in shock and trying to piece everything together,' a relative, speaking on condition of anonymity, told CNN.
