TALLASSEE, Ala. (AP) - State investigators are reviewing the shooting death of a man in Tallassee. Prosecutors say the shooting involved law enforcement but did not know if an officer fired shots. Police have identified the man as 38-year-old Bobby Jay Coates IV of the Eclectic/Tallassee area.

ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - The group steering the clean-up effort at old Fort McClellan near Anniston has received $56 million. The money will pay for the removal of unexploded ordnance and stray bullets, and environmental cleanup and monitoring. Fort McClellan closed in 1999. The cleanup effort is expected to last for 15 more years.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A 10th defendant has filed court papers in Montgomery seeking to plead guilty in a multi-state dog fighting investigation. Federal investigators have charged 14 people in the investigation. In addition to the 10 seeking to plead guilty, two are asking to enter a pre-trial diversion program. Two others are still scheduled for trial.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Prudency hearings on whether Mississippi Power should be able to get customers to pay for its Kemper County power plant have been postponed. The Public Utilities Staff sought the delay. Monitors say some spending was imprudent, which could lead regulators to charge costs to Mississippi Power.
