July 26, 2012 Updates

Five people were shot on a Harlem basketball court Wednesday night during an annual basketball tournament, officials and witnesses said. Gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. at the Holcombe Rucker Park court on Frederick Douglass Boulevard near W. 155th St. after a dispute during a game for the Entertainers Basketball Classic, witnesses said. "They started arguing, about a bad call or something like that," said Rodney Harris, 47. "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." New York Daily News

Nate Robinson, a former point guard for the Knicks, was at the game but escaped unscathed, witnesses said. "He was watching the game,” Harris said. “After the shooting, he was okay. He wasn't hurt...he left like everyone else." New York Daily News
