PRINCETON, Ky. (AP) - Princeton police are trying to piece together why a 15-year-old boy was shot dead.

Princeton Police Chief Don Weedman tells local media that police responded around 8 p.m. Monday to a neighborhood, where they found De’Aryn Hamilton lying in the street.

Hamilton was taken to Caldwell County Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Caldwell Coroner Dwayne Trafford says the teen was shot once, but wouldn’t specify where the bullet struck.

Police are investigating Hamilton’s death as a homicide. Weedman says the shooting is believed to be an isolated incident and “the public is not in danger.”

The case remains under investigation. Weedman says that as of Tuesday evening, no arrests had been made and no suspect had been identified.
