And all this time everybody has been worried what alcohol-addled underclassmen will do if they get a grade lower than what they think they should.

Anybody want to bet that the "person of interest" will save the state the expense of a trial when they catch up with him?

stay safe.

I ain't taking that bet...
Both accurate:
CLEVELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Dr. Shannon Lamb, the suspect in the DSU shooting, is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Department and other agencies on the ground in the county. Greenville Police spotted his black Dodge Avenger on Mississippi Highway 1, and gave chase. He eventually stopped, bailed out of the car and ran into the woods. He apparently shot himself while officers were giving chase.

i am discerning more and more suspects are, as skid mentioned, "..."person of interest" will save the state the expense of a trial..."

i find that quite interesting when this occurs, with more and more regularity i might add, only the nice LEs are on site when the self-inflected death occurs, or they are the only source who heard the 'person of interest' say they wouldn't be taken alive, or...
quote: In the news conference broadcast on WLOX-TV, the unidentified officer said anyone coming into contact with Lamb should use extreme caution because police had spoken to the suspect and “he’s made the statement that he’s not going to jail”. He would not say when or how police spoke to Lamb. unquote. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/sep/14/campus-shooting-mississippi-delta-state


i'm sorry, which side is your sword wound on so i can my hand into it.

just saying.

He hunkered down in a bathroom and heard others desperate to get in. “There were like people banging on the doors to have somebody let them in,” said Joyner, a swimmer at the college. “It was pretty terrifying.”

(my comment.. finally a breath of someone thinking) The professor gave the students chairs to throw if the shooter came in, ...

Possible infidelity - I am guessing. Hellova way to respond.

"Investigators said Lamb, 45, was a suspect in the slayings of 41-year-old Amy Prentiss, who was found dead in the home she shared with Lamb in Gautier; and 39-year-old Ethan Schmidt, a history professor who was killed in his own office on campus in Cleveland."
