Police say a 25-year-old woman was shot in the shoulder just before 9 p.m. inside the Half-Nelson Playground on 1631 Nelson Ave.
For many years, the community in Morris Heights would host the Father’s Day basketball tournament — and this year Father’s Day coincided with Juneteenth, so there were balloons celebrating the holiday as well.
She was taken to the hospital where she is expected to survive.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
