TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) - Police are continuing to search for suspects in the deadly shooting of a Tuskegee University student gunned down at a block party over the weekend.
WSFA-TV reports that Tuskegee police and the Alabama Bureau of Investigation are investigating the Friday night slaying of 21-year-old Bobby Smith of Mableton, Ga., just northwest of Atlanta. He was shot in the back and later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Tuskegee University President Gilbert Rochon said in a statement that the university community is mourning the death, and "we are all deeply affected by this terrible incident."
Smith, a finance major who played for Tuskegee's tennis team, was the father of a baby who is less than a month old.
Authorities say they're not certain of the shooter's motive.
