(CNN) —  

A Michigan college student accused of killing his parents at a campus residence hall was arrested early Saturday after a nearly daylong manhunt.

James Eric Davis Jr., 19, is suspected in the fatal shooting Friday following a family-related domestic dispute at Central Michigan University, authorities said. It was the nation’s 12th school shooting this year.

“The suspect was seen and reported by an individual on a train passing through the north end of campus shortly after midnight,” the university said in a statement.

He was arrested without incident.

“CMU President George E. Ross thanks the campus and surrounding community, and many law enforcement personnel who came together to keep each other safe and apprehend the suspect,” the statement said.

The victims

The university, in Mount Pleasant, identified the victims as the suspect’s parents: James Eric Davis Sr., 48, and Diva Jeenen Davis, 47.

“The family is in shock and trying to piece everything together,” a relative told CNN.

Campus police spoke with James Davis Jr. on Thursday night, Lt. Larry Klaus with CMU Police said during a news conference.

“At some point in the evening, he was transported to McLaren Hospital due to what the officers believed may be a drug-related type incident, an overdose or a bad reaction to drugs. At that point he was released to the hospital staff,” Klaus said.

As for Friday’s shooting, “we’re calling it a family-type domestic issue at this point,” Klaus said.

The shooting happened about 8:30 a.m. Friday on the dorm’s fourth floor.

The Davis family was from the Chicago area. Davis Jr. graduated from a high school in Plainfield, Illinois, about 30 miles southwest of Chicago, in 2016, said Tony Hernandez, Plainfield school district spokesman.

“He was always there when you asked for him to be there,” Bellwood police Chief Jiminez Allen said.

Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey said he believed the parents were picking up their son before spring break.

Davis Sr. was a pillar of the community, which has 20,000 residents, and was beloved by friends and neighbors, said Andre Harvey, Bellwood’s mayor.

Friday’s violence came more than two weeks after a shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, left 17 people dead and spurred a national debate over gun control.

Nine weeks into the year and 12 school shootings

’Secure mode’

Schools in Mount Pleasant went into “secure mode” – meaning all interior doors were locked, blinds drawn and no one allowed to enter buildings, according to Jennifer Verleger, Mount Pleasant Public Schools superintendent

The men’s basketball game Friday between Central Michigan and Western Michigan University was postponed, said Michael Alford, Central Michigan’s athletics director.

President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting, according to White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley.

The Mount Pleasant police and Isabella County Sheriff’s Department were assisting university police, officials said.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also assisted in the investigation, according to an ATF tweet.

The university, with roughly 23,000 students, is about two hours northwest of Detroit.

CNN’s calculation of the number of school shootings include shootings on school property, that involve one of more victims, includes domestic violence incidents, and other factors.

CNN’s Sheena Jones, Chuck Johnston, Marlena Baldacci and Steve Almasy contributed to this report.
