NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - Police are continuing to investigate a deadly shooting in a New Bedford park.

The Standard Times of New Bedford (https://bit.ly/1ebdch6 ) reports the victim of the incident late Thursday night in Harrington Park has been identified as 19-year-old Marcel Francois, who friends said was the father of two children.

Bristol District Attorney Thomas Quinn says police responded to a report of gunfire and found the young man suffering from gunshot wounds. Francois was later pronounced dead at a New Bedford hospital.

No arrests have been reported. Investigators do not believe the shooting was random.

It was the city’s second homicide of 2015.
