He was taken to the hospital in serious condition, where he died this morning.

The shooting came after a man at the park adjacent to the rec center called police when he saw “a guy with a gun pointing it at people.”

The caller twice said the gun was “probably fake” and told dispatchers the person pulling the gun from his waistband was “probably a juvenile,” according to audio released by police officials late Saturday.
