Good morning, SEC football fans. Here are a few links to get your Monday started.

 

A manhunt is underway for Desmonte Leonard, according to AL.com. Leonard is charged with killing three people Saturday night in at an apartment complex in Auburn, including former Auburn football players Ed Christian and Ladarious Phillips, and Auburn resident DeMario Pitts.

Current Auburn offensive lineman Eric Mack was shot in hip during the incident. Mack was released from the hospital on Sunday and says that the incident still seems "unreal," according to Emery Glover of the Orangeburg (S.C.) Times and Democrat.
