Police said McCoy shot Dominique Nolff of Middleville and Corbin Holwerda of Grand Haven on Jan. 31 at the East Lansing apartment the victims shared. Both Nolff and Holwerda were 20-year-old MSU students.

Nolff and Holwerda were both taken to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, where Nolff died the next morning from multiple gunshot wounds. Holwerda was treated for a single gunshot wound and released.

McCoy was arrested on Michigan Department of Corrections absconding charges Feb. 18 at a Grand Rapids address. East Lansing police had identified him at the time as a possible suspect in the Jan. 31 fatal shooting case.
