The Mid-American Conference said the game will now be played Saturday at Northwood University, located about 30 miles from CMU's campus. It will be closed to the public with only family members of the players allowed to attend.
The school announced early Saturday morning that the suspect, 19-year-old James Eric Davis Jr., was arrested without incident shortly after midnight. He was spotted by an individual on a train passing through the north end of campus who alerted law enforcement.
Police identified the victims as his mother, Diva Davis, and father, James Davis Sr.
The suspect in custody had been admitted to McLaren Central Michigan hospital Thursday night for what is believed to be a drug-related incident, according to CMU police. Davis was reportedly released from the hospital Friday morning, shortly before the shooting occurred at 8:30 a.m. ET.
