MICHIGAN SHOOTING: East Lansing police are looking for a suspected gunman, who shot two Michigan State students in their off-campus apartment early Friday night. One of the two students, Dominique Nolff, has died. The other student, identified as Corbin Holwerda, has been released from an area hospital. This is the third shooting at Michigan State in the past two weeks.
MLive reports Dominique Nolff, 20, graduated from Thornapple Kellogg and was a sophomore at Michigan State. Police believe the shooting “does not appear to be a random act” and the suspect being sought is believed to be in his 20s.
The shooting that claimed Dominique Nolff’s life, occurred in the 200 block of Cedar Street in the Cedar Village apartment complex.
Dominique Nolff’s murder comes as a Ferris State University student, who hasn’t been identified, was also shot in a separate incident. The unidentified student is said to have suffered non-life threatening injuries. That shooting occurred at about 4:15 a.m. Saturday, outside an off-campus apartment in Big Rapids. According to WOOD TV, the suspect is believed to be a “6 foot tall, 20-25 year old, 150-180 pound African-American male with dreadlocks. He was wearing black cargo pants, a red sweatshirt and a black vest.”
UPDATE #1: DeCory DeMarco Downing, of Macomb County, was charged with attempted murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony, said Bruce Borkovich, university director of public safety, in the Ferris State University shooting.
