    According to their Facebook feed, the campus is on lockdown.

    EDIT TO ADD: The campus is located in Cleveland, Mississippi. Emergency update reads:
    Delta State University has confirmed one fatality. Campus remains under lockdown. Please stay inside and away from windows. More information will be shared as soon as it is available.

    Mississippi Highway Patrol, Cleveland Police Department and the Bolivar County Sheriff's Department are all on hand.

    I know a ton of Delta State grads. There has been a huge pipeline of athletes from my high school to DSU because a prominent local politician was a big football star there in the late 1960s.

    A friend of mine is a former faculty member there and shared the initial emergency post on her Facebook page. I hadn't ever heard of it until she got hired a few years back.

    Updates sound more and more like the professor was targeted. I haven't seen any reports of injuries or shots fired outside of his office. Shooter is still at large so, at least for now, this doesn't look like a rampage shooting followed by suicide.

    Think the name of the town.
    Think a popular baseball movie about it.

    This quote from DSU student is just bizarre.

    "(Mississippi State University) caught their gunman, but we can't even catch ours. Our campus is a lot smaller than Mississippi State's."
