UPDATE: Downing Formally Charged In Big Rapids Shooting Near FSU
Police and students at Ferris State University are glad a suspect is in custody after a shooting at the university Saturday morning.
Police tell us DeCory D. Downing is charged with attempted murder and having a firearm.
He is being charged with assault to intent to murder, felony firearm, and attempted murder along with fourteen other crimes.
Police say Downing is not a student at the university, and so far they cannot find a connection between the suspect and the student that was shot. They say it may have started with an argument off-campus.
Witnesses are still being questioned, and police say they believe there will be more charges later in the week.
The student who was shot has been released from the hospital.
