Police say a former Rhode Island high school basketball player is dead following a weekend shooting in Providence.

Major David Lapatin says 22-year-old Kip Stewart died Monday night of his injuries at Rhode Island Hospital. Stewart was shot in the head at the Hartford Park housing complex on Saturday night.

Lapatin says the former Mount Pleasant basketball player was "probably not the target" when the gunman opened fire on people outside the projects.

Stewart's death marks the city's third homicide this year. No arrests have been reported.
