WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina teenager has died after he was shot at a water park.

Police in Wilmington told local media outlets on Thursday that 19-year-old Christopher White was shot just before 7 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot at the water park. Authorities say they believe White knew the shooter.

White’s death was the third shooting in Wilmington since Saturday and the second death. Last Saturday, police said 40-year-old Percy Woods was shot and killed at an intersection. That evening, 19-year-old Savannah Miller was shot in a house when someone fired shots from the driveway behind the house. Authorities say Miller is on life support.

Police won’t say if the shootings of White and Miller are related. The StarNews of Wilmington reports they were friends through social media.
