Motive Still a Mystery in Delta State Shooting

Shannon Lamb’s motive for fatally shooting his girlfriend and a university colleague remains largely a mystery. Police say Lamb had no criminal history and there was no evidence of domestic violence between him and Amy Prentiss.
There were some signs of trouble; Cleveland Police Chief Charles "Buster" Bingham said Tuesday that authorities had some indication Lamb and the second shooting victim, Delta State professor Ethan Schmidt, didn’t get along.
A student who praised Lamb, Brandon Beavers, said he also seemed agitated and jittery ‘like there was something wrong with him.’ Another student, Mikel Sykes, said Lamb told him he was dealing with stress at the end of the 2014-15 academic year.
A vigil for the shooting victim was held on the Delta State campus Tuesday night.
