SELMA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama high school basketball coach was shot and killed in what authorities are describing as a random robbery in Selma.
Police say Dallas County High School coach Christopher Harrell was fatally wounded in a holdup outside a barbecue restaurant on Thursday night.
Authorities say the 56-year-old Harrell had stopped to pick up dinner when someone tried to rob him.
Investigators are checking surveillance video and other leads, but no one has been arrested.
A prosecutor says there’s no indication the shooting had anything to do with Harrell’s work as a coach.
