Basketball Argument Leads To Killing In Philly!

A West Philadelphia Recreation Center which for years has been a safe haven for neighborhood boys and men turned deadly yesterday afternoon when an argument resulted in two brothers being shot, one of them fatally during a basketball game. One of the 2 brothers, who were not identified, was 23 and killed after being shot in the abdomen. The other brother, 19, was grazed in the head by a stray bullet and subsequently released after being treated at a local hospital.

It seems that no place is safe from violence, and the sad commentary on our country with violence being the easy answer continues. Thanks to the Philadelphia Daily News for the article.
