HIGH POINT, N.C. — High Point police have released new details in the shooting at Living Water Baptist Church on Nov. 8.
Police said a Davidson County sheriff's deputy in plain clothes fired the shot that killed 18-year-old Frederick Cox.
Investigators said as the crowd was leaving a funeral service, people started shooting, causing panic outside the church. Police believe the shooters were from a rival gang.

According to a release, a Davidson County deputy was at the funeral service as part of his investigation into a homicide. Investigators said when the deputy heard shots, he started ushering people to safety. At some point, the officer shot Cox.
The SBI is investigating since a deputy was involved in the shooting. The High Point Police Department is still searching for the suspects who fired at the church.
