William Tucker, the Vice President of Southwest Mississippi Community College, was found dead in his McComb home Saturday evening.

WLBT reports that Pike County Coroner Bryant Jones confirmed Tucker was shot and killed either Friday night or Saturday morning.

Jones told WLBT that he didn’t believe that Tucker’s death was the result of gang violence, despite an uptick in gang-related crimes in the area.

Tucker’s death remains under investigation. Police have yet to comment on the case.
