    The latest on a shooting at Delta State University that left a professor dead (all times local):

    An official says a professor has been shot and killed inside an office at Delta State University in Mississippi.


    Murray Roark, a deputy coroner in Bolivar County, says the professor killed Monday was a white man in his 50s. He would not identify the professor, who was killed in an office inside Jobe Hall.

    Investigators say Mississippi homicides could be connected

    Professor shot, killed at Delta State University; Suspect still at large

    UPDATED 2:26 PM CDT Sep 14, 2015




    (CNN) —Scores of local and federal law enforcement agents are scouring a Mississippi college campus after a history professor was shot to death in his office Monday.


    Ethan Schmidt was shot in the head while in his office at Delta State University in the city of Cleveland, according to according to Bolivar County Deputy Coroner Murray Roark.

    The shooter remains at large, the coroner said.


    And investigators in a town 300 miles away said the shooting could be connected to another homicide.


    Police in Gautier, Mississippi, are investigating a homicide that happened in the area Monday morning that could be connected to the fatal shooting of the Delta State University professor, Detective Matt Hoggatt with Gautier Police told CNN.


    Hoggatt said the suspect in the Gautier shooting, Shannon Lamb, was last seen driving a green SUV. That vehicle has also been linked to the Delta State University shooting, Hoggatt said.


    Authorities investigating the Delta State University shooting have not named any suspects in the case.


    The school had earlier tweeted on an official account that at least one person was killed in a shooting, and that the campus was on lockdown. The tweet advised that everyone stay indoors and away from windows. Classes have been canceled for the remainder of the day and evening.


    The hunt for Schmidt's killer has brought together campus police and city police as well as the Mississippi Highway Patrol, Bolivar County Sheriff's Department and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.


    Schmidt's Delta State biography says that he taught undergraduate courses in American history, and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Kansas in 2007. Schmidt had written several books and scholarly papers and had expertise in Native American history.


    Before working at Delta State, he taught for six years at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, where he received the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2011.

    Suspect in 2 Mississippi slayings: I'm "not going to jail"

    Last Updated Sep 14, 2015 9:15 PM EDT

    CLEVELAND, Miss. -- A man wanted in connection with two separate shootings that left a Mississippi college professor and a woman dead has spoken with police and said he's "not going to jail," authorities say.

    Lt. Scott Wilson and another officer whose name was not given said during a news conference in Gautier that they have spoken with Shannon Lamb, who is still on the loose.


    They urged extreme caution in dealing with him. The officials would not say when or how they spoke to Lamb.

    ETHAN SCHMIDT'S TWITTER PAGE

    Police identified the 45-year-old Lamb as a suspect in the shooting deaths of a woman he was living with in Gautier and a teacher he worked with at Delta State University in Cleveland.


    Bolivar County Deputy Coroner Murray Roark confirms the deceased professor is Ethan A. Schmidt. He is an Assistant Professor of American History at the college and is in his 50s.

    He was shot twice in his office on Monday morning.


    Spokeswoman Jennifer Farish said the campus was placed on lockdown shortly after reports of the shooting surfaced and that students, faculty and staff were advised to take shelter.


    It wasn't until later Monday that police said Lamb has also been identified as a suspect in the shooting death of a woman he lived with 300 miles away.


    Investigators in Gautier say 41-year-old Amy Prentiss was found shot to death in a home there Monday.


    Investigators have not commented on a motive in the shootings.

    All classes at Delta State University were cancelled for the remainder of the day and night, along with plans to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the campus on Tuesday.


    "Fortunately for us, our public safety officers and university officials have trained many of us for active shooter situations," Don Allan Mitchell, an English professor, wrote in a Facebook message to The Associated Press. "Many students are locked-down in classrooms, and professors and staff members are telling them the protocol. Plus, we are all texting and Facebooking each other to make sure we are safe."


    He said police helicopters were in the air, and officers were sweeping buildings following the shooting.

    Delta State University President Bill LaForge said that within 10 minutes of the shooting being reported, the university sent a campus-wide alert.

    Freshman Noah Joyner, 18, said he was shaken by the lockdown.


    Joyner hunkered down in a bathroom of his dorm building and heard others desperate to get in when reports of the active shooter spread.

    "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 to hear people banging on the door."


    Police swarmed the campus, sweeping buildings to search for the shooter while helicopters buzzed overhead. Officers equipped with body armor and rifles remained on the campus hours later.


    The 3,500-student university is in Mississippi's Delta region near the Arkansas-Mississippi state line.
