A 4-year-old boy died after he took a bullet in the head during a wild shootout on a Bronx basketball court Sunday night, cops and witnesses said.
Two men were also wounded in the gunfire that erupted during a hoops tournament at an E. 165th St. court in Morrisania about 9:40 p.m., police said.
The crowd of people had been watching the First Annual Ghetto Angels Basketball Tournament at the court in the Forrest Houses.
The game was part of an annual memorial for a 15-year-old girl that was stabbed to death one year ago, housing residents said.

Packing while playing hoops.
...Another witness said the shooter, a man known as Spidey, started shooting at someone playing basketball. The basketball player shot back, hitting the child, identified early Monday morning as Lloyd Morgan....
and stay away from any BBall game where the players are packing while they’re playing
> The libs already have a propaganda talking point to cover
> this: federal gun control.
Yes, we can see how well that’s worked out in places like Norway, Ireland, India, Japan, etc, etc, etc.
Why didn’t Bloomberg dispatch cops to this ghetto bb tournament? Oh, he was busy giving interviews on how Obama and Romney should be controlling guns.
Maybe part of the problem was that they weren’t playing at exactly midnight?
Damn Tea Party!
Sounds like a normal celebration of a ghetto death event. Liberalism sacrifices humans as no Jungle Cult ever did.
Just life in Da Big Sh*tty - move on, nuttin’ new.
“and stay away from any BBall game where the players are packing while theyre playing”
Better yet, read Darbyshire’s The Talk” and stay away from black areas/crowds/events.
You’re right, it doesn’t work, period.
But the bigger issue is: the US Constitution.
What does it say? We have the right to own guns.
What does it mean? We have the right to own guns.
All the rest is BS.
If the libs want to try to change the constitution, then I welcome them to give it a try. I’m fully confident such an effort will fail.
Until then, let’s start giving long prison sentences to any politician attempting to violate our constitutional rights.
What the hell was a 4 year old doing at a getto basketball tourney at near 10:00 PM? Seems the street rats come out after dark and this time they brought an innocent child along with them. (Yes I know it is not quite “dark” at 10:oo PM but the time of night is).
It was just before midnight.
I have no idea why someone would help their child set up a lemonade stand in the middle of the night.
> But the bigger issue is: the US Constitution.
Ah, but the Left claims that the US Constitution is a “Living Document”, subject to “interpretation” for the “times we live in”.
For example, they say the Founding Fathers could never have imagined things like repeating arms and autoloaders.
I submit that the Left’s definition of the Constitution as a “Living Document” is just Newspeak for “Dead Letter”.
They will interpret it any way they please and shove it down our throats.
They have all of Academia and all the Main Stream Media, and all of Big Entertainment on their side.
However, if we will turn back to God, and submit ourselves to Him, the gates of HELL cannot prevail against us!
We need a REVIVAL among the Christians in this nation. We need a GREAT AWAKENING among the unbelievers.
With God on our side, we are a majority!
Consider Gideon, Barak, Samson.
Our FAITH is what makes us strong!
I bet there was not a properly legal regulated gun in the mix. It kinda makes a person think gun control is a farce. It is so tragic when a child dies but the problem runs deeper then any law can address.
A glimpse into the future of the NBA, maybe?
“A glimpse into the future of the NBA, maybe?”
NBA farm system...
What do you expect from savages.....
Why don't you clean up your own town...
...Before you try to tell the rest of us how to live and breathe....
