DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama teen has been fatally shot just days after his high school graduation.

AL.com reports (http://bit.ly/2rgvojJ ) 19-year-old Kendarrius Dewayne Martin was found with multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday afternoon in a Dothan park. Police spent the night gathering evidence and conducting interviews, and have not released what caused the shooting or the names of any suspects.
