Professor sought after three killings

Three people died Saturday when a University of Georgia professor opened fire at a community theater event in Athens, Ga., the New York Times reported.

The alleged gunman, George Zinkhan, 56, is still sought by police, the Augusta Chronicle reported.

The three victims of the shooting were Zinkhan's wife, Marie Bruce, 47; Tom Tanner, 40; and Ben Teague, 63.

Zinkhan may have injured as many as three other people, but seemed to target the three who were killed according to Rick Bedell, an actor with the Town and Gown Players, the Augusta Chronicle reported.

Zinkhan dropped his children off at a neighbor's house immediately before or after the attack, the New York Times reported. The children are currently in police custody.

Zinkhan taught marketing at the University of Georgia's business school.
