    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Cleveland Police Department (CPD) is looking for a Delta State University employee Shannon Lamb who has allegedly killed a professor on the university campus, CPD Chief Buster Bingham said in a press conference on Monday.

    "The person of interest that we are looking for is Mr. Shannon Lamb," Bingham said. "He is an employee of the university and at this time we are following up on leads."
