Police have also identified the shooter as CMU sophomore James Davis Jr. He is still at large, and has been described at a 5-foot-9-inch tall 19-year-old black male wearing mustard colored jeans. Michigan State Police are still working to locate the shooter and locals are being asked to call police if they see anything suspicious.

According to WLIX, he was in the hospital Thursday night for a suspected drug overdose, and had been released this morning.
