Alabama Teacher Killed Outside School; Husband in Custody

A west Alabama teacher is dead and her husband is in custody following a shooting outside Livingston High School.

The city administrator in Livingston, Johnny Meadows, said Thursday a teacher was shot in front of the school about 3 p.m. Wednesday. Classes already had dismissed but students were on campus.

The educator died later at a hospital; no one else was injured.

The woman's husband was arrested about 30 minutes later after a chase ended in a wreck near Demopolis, which is about 30 miles from the school.

Police haven't released the name of the victim or the man who was arrested. But Meadows says city police plan to file a murder charge.

Livingston High School is closed Thursday and Friday because of the shooting.
