Last night there was a shooting at New York’s famed Rucker Park during the Entertainers Basketball Classic tournament. The games regularly play host to a variety of current and former NBA players. Last night Nate Robinson was in the house, although not playing, he did have to get quickly removed from the premises as random shots were being fired into the crowd. Five people were shot in the event, no deaths have been reported.
The mayhem broke loose just before 11 p.m. at the courts on West 155th Street and Eighth Avenue during the annual Entertainers Basketball Classic, which has featured numerous NBA superstars.
“All of a sudden the game stopped because an argument broke out in the stands,” said witness Rodney Harris Jr., 47, who was five feet from the melee.
“The next thing you know one guy reaches into his pants pocket and pulled out a gun. He fired one shot into the crowd and then another,” Harris said.
