Michigan State Police has confirmed two people are dead after a shooting on campus at Central Michigan University.
Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant sent out an alert to off possible shots fired on campus, according to the university newspaper and students.
Around 10:15 a.m., MSP said that two people were killed in the shooting. MSP wouldn’t say at this time if anyone else was injured.
