BREAKING: Suspected Mississippi college shooter dead of self-inflicted gunshot wound
A professor who allegedly killed his live-in girlfriend before shooting and killing a fellow professor on the campus of Delta State University has taken his own life, reports say.
According to the Clarion Ledger of Jackson, Miss., which cited unnamed law enforcement individuals, police attempted to stop Shannon Lamb, last seen driving a black 2011 Dodge Avenger with Mississippi license plates, late Monday. A license-plate reader picked up the car’s plate when Lamb crossed a bridge over the Mississippi River. Officers gave chase, but did not attempt to pull Lamb over.
Lamb, however, stopped of his own accord. Cleveland, Miss., Police Chief Charles Bingham said that officers following Lamb watched him pull his car over near Greenville, leave the vehicle and run into a wooded area. Then he said they heard a single gun shot and found Lamb’s body. He was transported to a hospital, where he died.
