FAIRMONT, N.C. – A 16-year-old Fairmont High School student was shot and killed Friday while playing on a basketball court at a local park.

Fairmont police say Daquan Stephens was approached by two men on the court at Calvin Haggin Park on Linden Street just before 6 p.m. After a short conversation, Stephens was shot multiple times and later died at the hospital.

There were several other people at the park that night but no one else was injured.

Police say they will step up patrols at the parks but believe it was an isolated incident and that the victim and suspects knew each other. No arrests have been made at this time.
