Shot fired on campus

A Central Michigan University police officer fired a shot at a suspect fleeing a break-in at the Bovee University Center early Monday morning.
No one was hurt, and two suspects are in the Isabella County Jail, according to a statement from the university.
CMU Police who responded to an alarm saw a suspect fleeing the building and chased him to the parking lot between Ronan and Powers halls, the statement said.
The suspect ignored police orders to stop and got in a vehicle containing a second subject, according to a statement from police. The officers ordered the suspects to get out of the vehicle, but instead the driver started the car and drove at the officers.
One officer fired his weapon in self defense, but no one was injured.
The two suspects were arrested a short time later by the Isabella County Sheriff's Department on River Road, and were taken to the Isabella County Jail.
CMU Police say the break-in was at the Microchips Computer Store in the Bovee University Center.
Parking Lot No. 6, between Ronan and Powers halls, was closed Monday morning while the investigation continued.
The incident happened around 3:15 a.m.
The CMU Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department, Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police and the Mount Pleasant Police Department.
