5 Shot At Rucker Park As NBA Stars Run For Their Lives
5 shot at the Rucker Park Entertainment Basketball Classic last night.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s a rough game in NYC.
Last night was the Entertainment Basketball Classic at Rucker Park in NYC. A number of current and former NBA players were in attendance like the former Knick Nate Robinson. Rucker park is known for being one of the streetball capitals of the world, but last night this famous court was the location of attempted murder.
At 11:00 p.m. a fight broke out in the stands that stopped the game and eventually led to shots being fired. This caused a near riot in the park as spectators and superstars alike fled for their lives.
“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 shots.
“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
Here’s the video as reported by Na Nills and World Star Hip Hop as things got hot.
