Basketball court feud ends with drive-by shooting

Multiple shots fired in Hollywood home

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – A Hollywood family packed up their things from their home Wednesday afternoon as police stood guard outside. 

The night before, someone fired multiple rounds into their house, with three children under the age of 7 inside.

The victims said the incident happened over a feud on the basketball court. 

Donna Rivera said the shooting stems from a fight at Beverly Park, where her 18-year-old son went to play basketball.

"My son's team lost, so they were arguing that they were cheating," Rivera said.

She said at some point the fight turned physical and eventually led to harassment at their doorstep.

"The first attempt was the brick through the window," Rivera said.

The brick was thrown near the bed where her grandson sleeps.

About an hour and a half later, Rivera said bullets started flying.

"This bullet up here came right through the door and wedged in the wall over here, over my daughter's bed," Rivera said, pointing to the bullet hole.

No one was hurt in the shooting.

Rivera said she wants those responsible to pay for what they did.

"Attempted murder for sure, because the house was full of people," she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
