SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ A Salina man found shot to death on Saturday had told police he was afraid for his safety because he was scheduled to testify against two men who were accused of shooting at him.

Salina Deputy Police Chief Carson Mansfield said the possibility that 24-year-old Alfred W. Mack Jr. was killed to prevent him from testifying is one of many theories being considered in the case.

No arrests have been made. Mansfield wouldn't say what type of gun was used or how many times he was shot.

Mack had been subpoenaed to testify against three men who allegedly shot at Mack and another man earlier this year.
