MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Four more students will be charged after a locker room assault on an Alabama high school student was caught on camera. Mobile police said Wednesday that they have identified four more Davidson High School students involved in an April 27 attack on Rodney Kim Jr. Police say three students are 18 and will be charged as adults, while one will be charged as a juvenile. Police on May 7 took three juveniles into custody on third-degree assault charges. They're still seeking a fourth suspect from then.

MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say chances are increasing for the first tropical weather system of the year in the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center said Thursday a mass of low pressure in the western Caribbean is becoming better defined and will likely become a subtropical or tropical depression by late Saturday. They're putting the chances of formation at 80 percent over the next five days. Downpours could dampen the Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of tourist season.

PAINT ROCK, Ala. (AP) - A northeast Alabama school district is closing a rural school instead of paying for repairs. Thursday is the last day for Paint Rock Valley School in Jackson County, after board members voted 3-2 to close the K-12 school last week. The move was unexpected after Jackson County leaders kept open the 74-student school last year. But board members balked at $200,000 in needed repairs to the historic school. Board members say they feared more expensive repairs in the future.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Officials in one of Alabama's largest cities are standing by their refusals to release recordings made by police body cameras. WHNT-TV reports the city has once again refused a request to release a recording. The latest request came after a bystander's video appeared to show a Huntsville police officer punching a suspect while trying to make an arrest. Huntsville City Attorney Trey Riley says recordings are a "public record to a certain extent" but aren't "automatically available."
