HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina say one man was killed and a 13-year-old girl was wounded after a shooting at a park

High Point police tell news outlets say a park ranger found 18-year-old James B. Murray Jr. of Kernersville lying in the grass Sunday with a gunshot wound and started performing life-saving measures that weren’t successful.

Police said officers heard of a second victim. The girl was taken to the hospital in a private car and was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg and released.

Investigators say multiple shots were fired from an elevated position.

According to police, there were between 15 and 20 people in the park before the shooting, and when law enforcement arrived, multiple people ran away.
