Shannon Lamb is suspected of the fatal shooting of Amy Prentiss, who he lived with on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, and Ethan Schmidt, a professor at Delta State University 300 miles away.
“I am so very sorry”, read the handwritten note Lamb signed and left at his home.
“I loved Amy and she is the only person who ever loved me”, Shannon Lamb, 45, wrote on a page of plain white legal paper Monday morning after fatally shooting Amy Prentiss, 41. “It felt like that, it felt like, I could actually die right now, that’s something that’s in the cards, and that’s really, really scary”, said Ely.
An instructor at Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss. LaForge said he did not know Lamb personally.
“He was quite the heartthrob back then”. He spent six years at Texas Tech University in Lubbock before joining the Delta State faculty.
Law enforcement officers gather on the Delta State University campus to search for an active shooter in connection with a the shooting of history professor in Cleveland, Miss., September 14, 2015.
Recent changes in the university’s hiring policies meant that the doctorate Lamb had worked so hard to earn would not guarantee him an automatic tenure track to become an assistant professor.
In the news conference, broadcast on WLOX-TV, another officer who was not identified said anyone coming into contact with Lamb should use extreme caution: “His statement was that he was not going to jail”.
He also added that at this point they don’t believe there was a relationship between Schmidt, who was a married father of three, and Prentiss. According to Fox News, the killings are assumed to be connected and the result of a love triangle, but motive for the crime hasn’t been formally established yet.
“I couldn’t even imagine what would be going through his head to cause something like this”, Dixon said over the phone. “She and her mother were absolutely best friends”. “He was an absolutely delightful student”. He added that there was no resistance when police set up perimiters, asked people to shelter in place, moved them from place to place, or any of the other procedure that went on during the crisis. A vigil was planned for Tuesday night, and classes resume Wednesday.
