(CNN) -- Police in Michigan responded Saturday to two shootings near university campuses, including one that left a Michigan State student dead.

Dominique James Nolff, 20, of Middleville, Michigan, was pronounced dead Saturday morning of multiple gunshot wounds from Friday night's incident at an off-campus apartment, according to East Lansing police.

An unnamed 20-year-old, also attending Michigan State University, was treated at Sparrow Hospital for a single gunshot wound and released.

The incident does not appear to have been a random act, police said.

Michigan State expressed its condolences and said counseling was available.

Authorities in Big Rapids, 125 miles from East Lansing, took into custody a man suspected of shooting a Ferris State University student Saturday morning in an off-campus apartment.

The victim was taken to a Grand Rapids hospital and later released, the school said.

The shooting occurred at Venlo Place apartments in Big Rapids, the university said.
