NEW YORK (AP) — Police have arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with a Jan. 14 shooting on an outdoor basketball court that wounded five teenagers in Brooklyn.

The New York Police Department says Keenan Upson was arrested Saturday on charges of assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

The shooting in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood wounded one youth in the arm, three others in the foot and one in the hip and calf.

None of the phone numbers listed for Upson were working, and it wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
