A 53-year-old man playing handball at a Crown Heights park was shot in the head on Sunday during a shootout between two warring groups, authorities said.
The victim, identified only as Chris, was playing on the eastern handball court in Lincoln Terrace Park by Buffalo and East New York avenues at 5:47 pm when two groups of gunmen fired up to nine shots at each other. One struck the hapless victim in the head, killing him on the scene.
Friends of the victim notified his family from East Flatbush of his death, but his relatives said they refused to believe that it was Chris who was slain until they will saw him personally.
