THE BRONX - Police are looking for a group of men who seriously wounded a teenager during a shootout on a Fordham Heights basketball court.

It happened at the Slattery Playground on 183rd Street and Valentine Avenue at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, right across from an elementary school.

According to investigators, an 18-year-old Hispanic man was playing ball when three or four men showed up and opened fire. The teen was hit once in the upper back and neck, and was rushed to Saint Barnabas Hospital where he is in critical, but stable condition.

The victim's name has not been released, but friends say he's a good kid who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
