Another tragedy out of our beloved Brooklyn, NY. Shaquille Jones, high school basketball player, was shot dead in an incident that left two of his friends wounded. Check out the details…

A popular high school hoopster was killed by a gunshot to the head behind a Brooklyn drugstore as he and two laughing buddies headed home Friday afternoon, police said.

Crime-scene tape surrounded the alley behind a Rite Aid at Flatlands Ave. and E. 79th St., where Shaquille Jones — still wearing his red jacket and black backpack — was found lying face down.

The slain 17-year-old’s two friends were wounded when the gunfire erupted just four blocks from South Shore High School’s Theater Arts School.

Jones, a junior basketball player at the school, was “a good kid,” said fellow student Jason Johnson, 17. “This is a tragedy. This is not the type of kid to get shot.”
