Another shooting: This one is at Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi. The school canceled classes for the day and placed the campus on lockdown. Police identified the victim as Ethan Schmidt, a history professor. They said Shannon Lamb, an employee of the school, is the person of interest. Lamb, who is still at large, called police earlier today to report a separate shooting at a house in Gautier, Mississippi, where a woman was found dead.

Kim Davis is back: The Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk returned to her job days after she was released from jail. She said she won’t stop her deputies from issuing licenses to same-sex couples, but added: “Any unauthorized license that they issue will not have my name, my title or my authority on it. Instead, the license will state that they are issued pursuant to a federal court order.”

Bernie Sanders is hopeful: The self-described democratic socialist told students at Liberty University, the Christian school founded by Jerry Falwell, that while they will never agree on social issues “maybe, just maybe we do not disagree on” issues like income inequality. Readers react to the visit here.

FIFA is warned: U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is warning that “additional charges against individuals and entities” are possible in the investigation into soccer’s governing body. Her remarks were made in Zurich alongside Michael Lauber, her Swiss counterpart.
