“We were playing basketball and I was going up for a rebound and next thing you know I hear shots,” Isom said.
Investigators said they found one of the victims in the parking lot next to the outdoor court.
The four other victims, including Isom, drove themselves to the hospital.
"My uncle told me he was shot, I just tried my best and tried to get him to the hospital – and then I look at my arm, I'm hit,” Isom said.
Police said two people were in critical condition, but everyone is expected to be okay.
MPD didn’t release any information on a suspect. They are reviewing surveillance video from cameras around the Raleigh Community Center.
Isom told FOX13 he did not know who the shooter was.
