    “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.
