An Oxford High School Senior is dead after a shooting in Anniston and one man is in jail. Anniston Police were called to the 1200 Block of West 16th Street about shots fired in the area on Friday. They say they found 17-year-old Broderick Taylor II unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest. According to investigators and witnesses it all began when Taylor was involved in a fight with 24-year-old Jerald Bailey of Anniston.
