— Fayetteville police have released the identities of a man and teenager shot in a crowded Fayetteville park Sunday evening.

Quenten Harley, 28, was seriously injured and D'Angelo Brown, 16, suffered minor injuries during the shooting on a basketball court in Seabrook Park, 716 Langdon St., around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Harley was in critical condition Monday but is expected to recover, police said. They declined to release his location out of safety concerns.

Police said that gunfire erupted during a fight on the basketball court. They are searching for a black man, with close-cut hair, wearing green shorts and a blue T-shirt. He arrived at the park in a light-colored SUV and fled on foot.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Fayetteville police detectives at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that solve crimes.

    Well, since there were people NOT involved in the b-ball game that may have seen something and didn't know it was valid information, a description of the clothing and the individual, location, etc. may jar someone's memory.

    Police always say what the person was wearing really do you think they will still be wearing the same clothes? Some maybe that stupid.

    "So the police have the car the shooter arrived in and they do not know who he is??? Come on, give the name of the person they are looking for."

    Perhaps the vehicle was stolen.

    I'll be dollars to dougnuts the cops already know the perps name. As many people who play ball down there, someone knows the shooter. The cops probably don't want to announce it publicly yet due to him probably being a local and not wanting to him to flee by putting his name in the paper.
