Pick-Up Basketball Returns to C.K. Newsome

News

Pick-up basketball at the C.K. Newsome Center returns on Friday.

It will be the first time since a shooting more than a year ago forced the city to cancel the popular weekend games.

In January of 2015, an 18-year-old man fired two shots in the center’s crowded gym.

No one was hit in the incident, but it raised concerns over security.

City leaders say new security measures are now in place including extra staff, cameras, and some players will be asked to a show a photo I.D. Before taking the court.
