FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Classes are scheduled to resume at a southwest Florida Christian school where a man was shot and killed in the parking lot.

Authorities say 27-year-old Kristopher Smith was dropping his children off Monday at the Apostolic Revival Center and Christian School when he was killed.

No children were injured, and it doesn't appear any children were in the parking lot to witness the shooting.

The Fort Myers News-Press reports that school was closed Tuesday because of the shooting and classes will resume Wednesday.

Authorities are investigating the homicide and have not yet made an arrest. Officials say the shooting has nothing to do with the school.
