MICHIGAN STATE: Two Off-Campus Shootings Leave One Student Dead
(CNN) — Police in Michigan searched Saturday for suspects in 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, were searching for a gunman who shot 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.
Late Saturday, the university said its police force, along with other agencies, have learned the suspect might be in an apartment elsewhere that was not searched earlier in the day. “Police have the apartment contained and attempts are being made to contact the occupants,” it said. “Efforts are being made to have a peaceful solution to the situation.”
