CLEVELAND, Miss. — Delta State University has dedicated a sculpture to a history professor killed in a 2015 campus shooting.

The university placed the 8-foot (2.5-meter) steel and rope statue, Broken Arrow, in downtown Cleveland in August. It’s part of the 3,600-student university’s Hazel and Jimmy Sanders Sculpture Garden.

The statue by Delta State graduate Lawson King honors Ethan Schmidt, killed in his office by instructor Shannon Lamb. Lamb earlier killed a woman he lived with in Gautier, then killed himself.

Delta State Art Department Chair Michael Stanley, in a news release, notes a broken arrow is a Native American peace symbol. Schmidt studied American Indian history.

King says he felt connected to Schmidt because his own father died in a shooting, and because King taught with Schmidt’s wife at a local school.
