A 16-year-old boy was shot in the leg while playing basketball in a Brooklyn park shortly after class was dismissed on Monday afternoon.
The teen was in Washington Hall Park when another male fired repeatedly onto the court where he was playing near Washington Street and Park Avenue in Clinton Hill at about 3:30 p.m., police said, according to the New York Post.
The wounded boy then ran to the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Waverly Avenue and discovered that he had been shot in the right leg, police sources said.
He was taken to Kings County Hospital and expected to survive, cops said.
Police said they didn’t know if he was the intended target or what the shooter’s motive was.
