WILMINGTON, N.C. — A teen has died after being shot in the back in the parking lot of a North Carolina park.

Local media outlets reported that 19-year-old Christopher White was shot shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday at a park in Wilmington that includes mini-golf, laser tag, a g-kart track and a water park.

A witness told police a white car pulled away right after the shooting, heading toward Wrightsville Beach.

Wilmington police say they think White knew the person who shot him. No arrests have been made.
