HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A former Huntsville special education teacher has been charged with murder.

Media outlets report that 49-year-old Milton Tyson was arrested Thursday and accused of fatally shooting 29-year-old Marcus White on Tuesday night.

Police have not said what led to the shooting, but said the two knew each other.

WHNT-TV (https://bit.ly/2kz5J1d ) reports Tyson was a special education teacher at Lee High School for almost 20 years. The school system says he was fired last year for failing to complete certain paperwork that affected his students. He was also facing sexual harassment allegations from a female student.
