ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Shock and sadness reverberated across Eastern Michigan University's campus Friday as word spread of campus Police Chief Greg O'Dell's death from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Around noon Friday, the Ann Arbor Police Department received a call from an O'Dell relative after the discovery of what the family member thought was a suicide note, said Derrick Jackson, director of community engagement for the Washtenaw County Sheriff's office.
