Rucker Park Shooting Video: 5 People Shot at Entertainers Basketball Classic

| by Alex Groberman

Five people were reportedly shot during an Entertainers Basketball Classic game at Rucker Park late Wednesday night. Details remain scarce at the moment, however, as is usually the case when it comes to hoops-related violence, it was all apparently caused by poor officiating.

Robert Harris, a witness who was on scene when things popped off, had this to say (via Inside Hoops): “They started arguing, about a bad call or something like that,” he said. “The guy was standing no more than five feet away from me. He pulled a gun out of his pocket and shot once. He then shot one more time. Everyone started running.”

Word has it that NBA player Nate Robinson was present and able to escape the violence.
