Police in southern Mississippi say they have spoken with a man suspected in two shooting deaths and that he said he’s “not going to jail.”

Lt. Scott Wilson and another officer whose name was not given said during a news conference Monday in Gautier that they have spoken with Shannon Lamb.

They urged extreme caution in dealing with him. The unidentified officer said Lamb told police “he’s not going to jail.” They would not say when or how they spoke to Lamb. The news conference was broadcast on WLOX.

Police have identified 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.

A manhunt is now under way for Lamb.
