Police Search For Gunman Suspected Of Killing MSU Student

EAST LANSING (WWJ) – Police have released surveillance camera images of a man suspected in the shooting death of a 20-year-old Michigan State University student.

The photos show the suspected gunman arriving the off-campus Cedar Village apartment complex and leaving just minutes later, around 8:50 p.m. Friday. The complex is less than a mile away from the school’s East Lansing campus.

Police say the gunman fired several shots, injuring two students. Both were rushed to Sparrow Hospital where Dominique Nolff, a MSU sophomore, later died. The other victim, Nolff’s 20-year-old roommate, was treated and released.

East Lansing police said the shooting does not appear to be a random act, although they did not elaborate.

Police said the suspect may have “significant facial injuries” from a struggle with his victims. He is described as a 20- to 25-year-old African American, 6’1″ to 6’3″ tall and 170 pounds. At the time of the shooting, he was wearing a black, hooded North Face winter jacket, tan pants and black shoes.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 517-319-6884.
