Man shot in Dickinson Square Park basketball court in middle of the day

Dickinson Square Park, normally a scene filled with people exercising and children playing, became the center of a crime scene Thursday afternoon as shots rung out at the centrally located basketball court around 2 p.m.

Philadelphia Police were seen roping off the area of the park near Moyamensing Avenue and Morris Street and placing evidence placards on the ground where bullet casings lay strewn. Multiple police and news helicopters caused quite a stir as they hovered over the park. Philly.com lists the victim, who was shot once in the right leg, as a “25-year-old Hispanic man.” He was taken and treated at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Fox29 Tweeted: "Breaking: Detectives place bullet casing markers at Morris & E Moyamensing b-ball court. 1 person shot in Pennsport."
