|Professor Ethan A. Schmidt|
A professor was shot and killed on Monday at Delta State University in Mississippi, a county coroner said, and the school remained locked down as authorities searched for a possible active shooter on campus.
The university, located in Cleveland, Mississippi, confirmed the fatality on its Twitter account and asked those on campus to stay inside and away from windows.
The shooter remains at-large, the Bolivar County Sheriff's Department said, adding it had no immediate description of any possible suspect.
Here is more from NBC News:
Bolivar County Deputy Coroner Ted Ray identified the victim as Dr. Ethan Schmidt. The school's website lists Schmidt as a professor of American history.
I have been watching this for much of the morning. So far no motive has been identified, and the identity of the shooter remains unknown.
I will update as more information becomes available.
Update: Okay now we are learning that there is another victim linked to the shooter, and that she works at the university as well.
Update 2: They now have a suspect.
