MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - A manhunt continues for a 19-year-old student suspected of killing his parents at a Central Michigan University dormitory.

Police on Saturday continued searching for James Eric Davis Jr., who allegedly ran from campus following the shooting at Campbell Hall.

Friday's shooting prompted a search of nearby neighborhoods that included more than 100 police officers and happened on a day when parents were arriving to pick up students for the beginning of a week-long spring break.

Police urged the public to call 911 if they saw Davis but said he shouldn't be confronted.

The university identified the two dead as Davis' mother Diva Davis and father James Davis Sr., a part-time police officer in the Chicago suburb of Bellwood.

Central Michigan is located about 70 miles (112.6 kilometers) north of Lansing.
