Five people injured in shooting at New York City basketball game

Police investigate the scene of a shooting at Rucker Park in Harlem on July 25, 2012 CBS New York

(CBS) NEW YORK -- Five people were injured in a shooting at a basketball court Wednesday night in Harlem during an annual basketball tournament, reports CBS New York.

The shooting happened around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday at Rucker Park and may have resulted from a dispute during the game, police said, but they are still investigating.

All of the victims were taken to area hospitals and are expected to survive.

CBS New York reports that the incident is the second shooting at a basketball tournament in the city this week. On Sunday, 4-year-old Lloyd Morgan was shot dead during a gunfight at a charity basketball tournament at the Forest Houses in the Bronx.

On Wednesday, 17-year-old Rondell Pinkerton was charged with murder, attempted murder and gun possession in Morgan's death. Another suspect, 26-year-old Courtney Kelly, faces weapons charges in the case, reports the station.

The shooting comes as Mayor Michael Bloomberg has called out President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney to spell out their specific gun policies.

Bloomberg, who has long lobbied against illegal guns and gun violence, stepped up his rhetoric in the wake of the massacre in Aurora, Colo.
