Breaking News: UGA professor suspected in deadly Athens shooting
Downtown Athens, GA is packed today with families attending the Twilight Criterium. The local newspaper web server cannot handle the explosion in traffic and local news radio is not running live reports. Will post more as it happens. I cannot get out and get pictures for safety reasons.
A manhunt is on in Athens for a University of Georgia professor accused of shooting and killing three people.
Police are looking for George M. Zinkhan III, a professor in the Department of Marketing and Distribution.
He is a 57-year-old white male, last seen wearing a polo shirt and blue shorts, according to the UGA web site. He may be traveling in a red car.
The shooting happened late this morning at or near the Athens Community Theatre off Prince Avenue near downtown. Clarke County coroner Sonny Wilson confirmed the deaths, but did not know the ages or gender of the victims.
