Gunfire left a teenager dead at a crowded community center on Friday night.

The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Recreation Center at 22nd and Cecil B. Moore Streets.

An argument apparent broke out between fans during a benefit basketball game.

Police said one person opened fire striking a 15-year old male spectator in the chest.

The wounded teen was rushed Temple Hospital in very critical condition. He died a short time later.

Investigators say while the center was crowded, no one is claiming to have seen anything.
