A man was shot after a dispute over a double parked vehicle in the Bronx Friday, according to his family.

Mory Keita, 32, was shot once in the behind after police say he and a group of men got into an argument over parking.

The incident happened on Plimpton Avenue between West 169th and West 170th streets in Highbridge around 12:15 a.m.

Family members of Keita say he and a group of friends were outside of his car where one of his friends had double parked.

Another group of men pulled up the them and began yelling about the double parked car.
