Man, 18, arrested in shooting death of Lafayette teacher

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — An 18-year-old man has been arrested in the shooting death of a Lafayette art teacher.

Kristi Redmon was found dead outside her home Wednesday night after neighbors reported hearing gunshots in the area. The 52-year-old taught art at two elementary schools in Lafayette.
