FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — 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.
