Police: Western Michigan student killed in off-campus shooting

- Police say a 20-year-old Western Michigan University student has been fatally shot at an apartment near campus and they're seeking two men seen fleeing the area.

Kalamazoo public safety officers and campus police responded about 10:30 p.m. Thursday to a call about the shooting and found the man dead of an apparent gunshot wound. Witnesses told police two men fled on foot and were believed to have driven away.

Police didn't immediately disclose details about the circumstances of the shooting.

The name of the man who died wasn't released early Friday, but the school says he was a student. University President John Dunn says in a statement the school community "is stunned by the realization that a promising life has been lost." He says the school is working with police.
