James Eric Davis

A Central Michigan University sophomore is still on the run after killing his parents when they arrived to pick him up from school for spring break. The shooting of 2 people on the university campus was breaking news on Friday.

According to The Detroit Free Press, James Eric Davis, Jr., 19, fatally shot his parents in his fourth floor dorm room after they arrived to pick him up.

The Free Press reports police had contact with Davis late Thursday night and they took him to a hospital for a psych evaluation. Davis was released from the hospital Thursday morning, shortly before he killed his parents.

Central Michigan University was on lockdown after the shooting. The lockdown included K-12 schools in the area and many local businesses, including Target, were closed.

“This young man, who obviously is troubled, killed his parents, and that’s very sad,” said Cheryl Hunter, owner of O’Kelly’s Sports Bar and Grille, a student hangout near CMU.

Police and other law enforcement agencies are searching for Davis, who is armed and considered dangerous.

Davis is described as a black male, 5-feet-10 and 135 pounds.

  • Berry Melon

    They need to capture him before he kills someone else…

  • bemetoo

    a black mental teenager ?? they will shoot him dead when they find him

  • SweetTEE

    Which will be later today.

  • Applebootay

    GURRRRLLL!

  • Berry Melon

    Well he is armed with a gun right? And is totally out of his mind… if they don’t shoot him dead, he’ll probably shoot himself dead. Imagine killing your own flesh and blood.

  • SweetTEE

    how was he with police Thursday night and released if he killed his parents Thursday morning? Why was he released at all? Aren’t the holds at least 24 hours or am I tripping?

  • Ni Ni

    I wonder if he got a hold of some bad dope. Sad story!

  • SweetTEE

    You are SO missing the point.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    hopefully he is peacefully captured like his cave demon counterparts. and then described as a troubled “kid” who will illicit sympathy from the white media.

    best wishes to this guy and his family.

  • SweetTEE

    In college? Sounds about right. I personally know TWO dudes that this happened to at 18 in college.

  • Berry Melon

    I get the point – Police will shoot anyone who is black on sight… I’m more or less emphasising on him carrying a gun? Which could increase the chance of him getting shot to death. I’m not sure to be honest if he still has the gun or is he just on the run? What would make him want to kill his parents? A psych evaluation? That’s not a very good excuse to kill your parents… now if they were beating him… that’d be a totally different story.

  • Berry Melon

    Oh, wait I missed one vital part. He is “armed and considered dangerous.” Okay… I didn’t see that part.

  • Ni Ni

    I wouldnt dare try weed nowadays. You’re liable to be smoking it laced with battery acid, rat poison, who knows. These kids out here destroying their brain cells trying to get high.

  • ShelbyMoore

    So his black as$ gonna act like he’s white like he don’t have any damn sense? You black kids need to leave this to them Saltines…we don’t do this shat…especially not to the parents. Dumb as$.

  • TheOwley

    So he was insane, they let him go, he kills parents. That’s the state of mental health care. It’s none existent. Now the kid will get locked up and get all the mental health care he needs. But before that, a killing had to happen. See a pattern here. smh.

  • MsPam

    RIP James Davis Sr and Diva Davis!??

  • Patricia

    i guess he had other plans for spring break

  • TMW

    He wasn’t in police custody. They drove him to the hospital for a drug related event. He was released to his parents from the hospital. My daughter lives on the same floor. It has been a rough, scary day.

  • KayCeiSoul

    That is the story around these parts Ni Ni. The night before he went to the hospital because he had a bad reaction to whatever drug he had taken. Sad.

  • Ni Ni

    Smh, I hate it for him when he comes to himself and realizes what he’s done.

  • IamAllnatural

    ?????

  • IamAllnatural

    I thought he was white from the headline. Maybe he grew up around white people. We definitely don’t do stuff like this. RIP to his parents.

  • Dowoop

    Police and other law enforcement agencies are searching for Davis, who is armed and considered dangerous.

    Not mentally unstable they say.

  • Nathan Hastings

    He’s a child ?

  • IamAllnatural

    But alot of times they don’t fully recover from bad drugs. Sad story because his parents were caught off guard.

  • IamAllnatural

    He’s not white!

  • klwbaby

    It probably was laced with PCP.

  • justlooking

    Hey KayCeiSoul – Haven’t seen you around these parts in years. Hope all is well.

    Sad sad news.

  • guest

    Damn!!!!!so sadd and senseless! I bet he probably smoke laced marajiana. Ruined his life *prayers* #rip

  • BloodBlood

    Clearly

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    So you noticed that too huh?

  • BloodBlood

    I don’t think he wanted to go with them?

  • Soda

    I read a story of a young black dude who stabbed his mom because he thought she was going to rape him. He had been smoking something.

  • Soda

    Maybe we’re starting to do stuff like this. I found out by WSHH that my former neighbor (black) was killed by her son, after he had killed 7 other people.

  • justlooking

    hopefully he can be afforded the same opportunity to be captured alive.

    Like White
    Dylan Roof
    Robert Lewis
    Joseph Houseman
    Lance Tamayo
    Julia Shields
    Derrick Thomas

  • Nina Ross

    Why did the hospital release him? They need to be sued!

  • SweetTEE

    Thank you, bc the info I read was extremely confusing. Prayers to the family, your daughter and the rest of those students.

  • Lady_Elle

    If the police took him for a psych evaluation… the hospital is allowed to keep him for a bit.

    To let him go 24 hours later? Something seems missing from this story. :-(

  • SweetTEE

    I’m an avid smoker myself and I can agree. *whispers* its best to just have your own little plant these days.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    a gun and fucked up tape line don’t mix…

  • justlooking

    A psy hold is only for 24 hours

  • SweetTEE

    Naw, you missed the sarcasm of the fact that he is Black and also mentally disabled and he wont be treated the same as the knuckle head that killed those kids.

  • SweetTEE

    Then you should have understood what was said…

  • ?Royalty?

    I dated a guy whose “friend/dealer” joked with him one day about lacing his weed with bug spray, or LSD. They laughed but I later pulled my friend aside and told him, he’s telling you what he will do to you someday. It isn’t a joke.
    Guess what?
    He did exactly what he “joked” he would do.

  • Jaclyn2016

    Excuses ! If it was a drug related murder, it is still his fault. I hope that he is captured alive. He did murder his parents….

  • Ms. Jackson

    Why did u just make me giggle…. This is just tragic. Prayers to the family.

  • SweetTEE

    This is the question that I had. If the police took him to the hospital on Thursday, I assumed they would consider that a psychiatric hold and have him for at least 24 hours. Maybe the write up above has errors bc it literally doesnt make sense.

  • SweetTEE

    There was also a post here like a year or so ago where a black boy killed his parents.

  • Lady_Elle

    Wow… I did not realize it was so short.
    Is this different depending on state?

  • SweetTEE

    My former patient did some wild ish after he smoked a laced blunt at 18. He was valedictorian of his class and he will never be the same. He doesnt even remember smoking. Sad.

  • justlooking

    Yes, I think it’s different for each state and facility. In California it’s 72 hours they can hold you against your will.

  • SweetTEE

    He wont and they WILL shoot him dead on sight….or maybe not bc he murdered his BLACK parents and they don’t think we’re human anyway. Either way, he’s going down.

  • SweetTEE

    Why did I think of “sherm head” when I read PCP? smh.

  • hottlanta

    OMG now what is a parent to do when our kids tell us they gonna kill us. Because they do get attitude talking about they hate us/wish us dead etc, etc.

  • Rayscoty

    Somebody not reporting the truth..

  • Alicia.Ashe

    R.I.P to his parents. Hopefully they won’t shoot him dead.

  • Guest©

    Unfortunately, anyone regardless of race can suffer from mental illness. Its clear he was not properly evaluated at the hospital as he subsequently killed his parents. Sad story.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    A murdering one.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    That means no Burger King. Just a bullet.

  • CookieMobster

    My son better not ever tell me he hates me and I believe he would never say he wishes I was dead. He does have a smart mouth though

  • Ghost

    or himself…

  • TMW

    In MI the psych hold is up to 72 hours, but he wasn’t on a psych hold though. The police took him to the hospital because of his reaction to the drugs. Campus police took him to the ER and left him at the door.

  • TMW

    Thank you! She’s home safe with me now.

  • Lady_Elle

    Thank you! This makes sense!

  • hottlanta

    Betta not look at the ID Channel Killer Kids. It will freak you out.

  • TMW

    He’s not a mass shooter. He killed his parents on campus. But if he hasn’t taken his own life, they may take it for him. He’s on foot in Mt. Pleasant – he didn’t get far because there really isn’t anywhere to go.

  • Lolly Asher

    He was not having family night. This story raises so many questions but my first one is what really happened?

  • Kayke

    Ssd. If you fit that description, please stay in the damn house. I can only imagine the mistaken identities and deaths the police can cause from just being armed with that description.

  • Quitedeliteful

    What a shame. Not only is he gonna be in jail for the next 40 years if he’s taken in alive but once he comes down from whatever he was hopped up on he will forever have to live the with guilt of killing his parents…

  • Malcom Flex

    Punk needs to off himself.

  • Sad

    If my child ever told me that, that would be the first and the last time. Even if they felt it, they would learn to never speak it again. But if your kids have issues, get them some help. That’s probably why they came to pick him up. I believe he was mentally ill, but you know that only applies to whites.

  • Sad

    This is so sad. Why was he released from the psychiatric hospital? What did the evaluation say? Negligence on the part of the hospital that released him, if he was showing signs of mental illness. RIP to the parents.

  • Oya Shango

    The police says that they had “contact” with Davis on Thurs before they took him in for a psych evaluation. What was the nature of this “contact?” Clearly, there is some serious dysfunction in this family. So very tragic and could have possibly have been prevented.

  • Renee26

    Well he can’t use the mental angle if the hosital released him

  • Renee26

    Huh… Not mine! I’d beat him down lol

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    This is indeed sad because the mom & dad look like decent honorable people. The boy was probably troubled, and the folks were visiting him on campus – for what reason? Get his facebook account, get his social media account and all the answers will come out why he shot his own people. Sad indeed. Both of them. Not on, but both.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Bad meds. When “some” kids go to college for the first time, their first year, they go absolutely wild. It’s their first contact with drugs whether legal or illegal. And they drink, boy do they drink.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    That could be why the parents were there, to pick him up.

  • Patricia

    its drugs! the mj be laced with all sorts of toxic stuff. these teens are experimenting with crazy stuff. they post it to their fb bragging of popping pills and smoking weed. all it takes is one time…

  • SoChlo

    5’10, 135 pounds. Maybe he was hangry?
    Seriously though, this is sad. Onset of schizophrenia typically occurs around this age and it sounds like he was battling some psych issues.

  • SoChlo

    In most states if they go in on suicidal precautions the precautions must be discharged 3 days prior to release or the hospital is liable. I smell a lawsuit.

  • gail jones

    Hospitals will release a fool in a heartbeat. So that theory is out the window. The trend in Amerikkka is ‘no more institutionalization of our mentally ill’. WRONG ANSWER!

  • gail jones

    I simply tell mine this (and this is REAL TALK)… “The only thing I got to say is, you better get me before I get you”.

  • gail jones

    You wild as hell! I’m done with you!

  • millz

    Those black kids In Georgia tried killing their parents … rare yea but it happens to us every so often…

  • the guest

    Tragic.

  • the guest

    Speak.

  • the guest

    Those kids in Georgia were affluent, detrimentally spoiled, with a delusional white sense of entitlement. Then their parents acted classic white and defended their spoiled children’s attempt on their lives.

    There is something ingrained in 100% black children, a home training, something I can’t quite describe because it’s something you have to feel or know, something in black children even in bad black children that they don’t kill their parents. But the influence of privilege shifts core black values out of place.

    Not all mentally ill people go around killing their parents. Spoiled, entitled, and selfish mentally ill people kill their parents.

    The psychopath kid on the run in this story just wanted something his way and he killed his parents because he couldn’t have his way about something. I don’t think he flipped, he was angry at his parents and his mental illness drove him to kill.

    But society needs to look at how spoiled kids today have become getting angry at their parents for not getting their way. No respect for elders is leading to destruction.

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    had to bring a negro is the mix of their gun violence foolishness like when they went after Tavis.

  • BloodBlood

    Sorry lol

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    So they knew he’s son was crazy and was in the hospital for being “crazy’, and the father still brought a gun with him on the way to pick him up? And to make matters worst, he was a police officer. No lock on your gun? Anybody could have stolen the gun, not just his Son. This was negate

  • Terrible

    He’s going to be in prison until the day he die. If live another 60 years he’ll spend those years in someone prison tossing salads. He’ll probably kill himself.

  • L.A. Fuller

    I doubt if the hospital woukd release someone who tried to commit suicide the next morning

  • Miss Thang

    Why was he released so early? Shouldn’t they have kept him in psych unit at least 72 hours?

  • Cali

    it’s only 24hrs

  • Cali

    How sway? Being released after a 24hr hold doesn’t mean $hit

  • Cali

    i think he tried that first, too bad he wasn’t successful

  • Quitedeliteful

    And he’s only nineteen??? You know he’s gonna be passed around for a pack of cigarettes…

  • Faux Gibbler

    So sad.

  • Candance

    Is this the one were they determined that he killed them because they told him they weren’t paying his tuition anymore?

  • shun king

    sorry but that has been my username way before that idiotic BLM dude…but about guns you didnt hear about all this mass killing 30 years ago and these same guns were available..the guns didnt change the people did
