FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Fayetteville Police Chief Harold Medlock says he is more than frustrated, he’s angry that police are not getting more cooperation in solving the slaying of a 16-year-old boy last weekend.

Medlock tells the Fayetteville Observer (https://bit.ly/1pwcAkMke ) that police think they know the three people responsible but cannot obtain warrants because witnesses have not come forward.

Authorities say Joseph Braxton III was shot and killed Sept. 27 when he arrived at a party.

About 20 students were invited to the party and there were about 10 adult chaperones. The chief says several of those attending saw the shooting and some may have recorded it on cellphones.

He says neither parents nor students are cooperating with police.
