Boy, 4, shot in head and dies in Bronx basketball court
The slain child was identified as Lloyd Morgan. An observer who said she was a friend of Morgan's family said mothers began searching the courts for their children when the guns finally silenced.
“When my friend didn’t see her kid, she panicked,” said the woman. “Then she saw him on the floor, shot.”
A team of medics brought the little boy, to Lincoln Hospital, where he died. A 27-year-old man was taken to the same hospital with a bullet in his stomach.
“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!”
