SELMA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is offering $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in a 2016 slaying in Dallas County

WSFA-TV reports on Dec. 16, 2016, 19-year-old Jaequan (JAY-kwan) Simmons was found unconscious in a vehicle, with gunshot wounds. He died shortly after.

Authorities say the shooting remains unsolved, and there are no suspects.

Simmons graduated from Keith High School in 2015 and was a star on the basketball team.
