4-Year-Old Dies In Basketball Shootout

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.

“It was a nice day,” said one witness, who declined to give her name. “People are all out and before you know it — it was Pop! Pop! Pop!”

People scurried around the court to get away from the spray of bullets.

“People started running everywhere,” the witness said. “They were screaming, a frightened scream. People were running, crossing the streets — not caring if cars were driving. They were scared.”
