Police are investigating a report of gunshots on Monday around 4:30 p.m. at 101st Street and Amsterdam Avenue, the location of the Frederick Douglass Playground. No one was injured and no one was taken into custody. Police are still investigating what occurred, an NYPD spokesman said. “It’s unclear who is responsible,” he said. Its also not clear how many shots were fired. The shooting occurred a block from the 24th precinct.
Another shooting at a playground in the 20th precinct last month has led to new concerns that that precinct does not have enough officers.
