Selma police seek clues in student's slaying

SELMA, Ala. (AP) - Police in Selma are trying to figure out what
led to the killing of a 16-year-old high school sophomore.

Authorities say Joshua Jackson was shot to death late Sunday on
a city street during a confrontation with four males, one of whom
was armed.

Police Chief William T. Riley III said detectives still aren't sure what happened, and they don't have any suspects in the killing.

Counselors were on hand Monday to talk with students at Selma
High School, where Jackson was a sophomore.

Testing has been delayed at the school for Alabama's graduation exam because of students' reaction to the killing.
