16-Year-Old Shot Dead in Late Night Incident

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A 16-year-old Huntsville girl died from a gunshot after she got involved in a fight with other teenagers on a residential street.

Wendell Johnson, a police spokesman, said Jamie Collier was shot dead by a 14-year-old boy. He said it happened last night around 11 p-m on Mount Vernon Road.

Johnson said the boy surrendered to officers about two hours later and was charged with Collier's murder.

He's being held at a juvenile detention facility. Police declined to release the boy's name because of his age.

Its unclear what led to the deadly confrontation.
