A pickup game of basketball turned deadly Sunday afternoon in Harlem when four men were blasted with bullets — one fatally, officials said.

The gunfire erupted just before 5 p.m. on the court at the St. Nicholas Houses on W. 129th St. and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd., police said.

A slug hit Hakim (Casper) Green, 25, in the back and killed him, police sources and friends said.

Three others were in stable condition at Harlem Hospital and expected to survive: Joseph Scott, 23, was struck in the head with bullet fragments; Jamel Nunnally, 20, was grazed in the head; and Raheem Wiggins, 19, was shot in the leg, police sources said.

“I heard boom, boom,” said Priscilla Carson, 44, adding she heard five shots.

Sorrow filled the streets as friends and family mourned the loss of Green, a new dad to his 2-month-old son.

“That’s what has everyone sad right now,” said Eric Martinez, 22. “He had just become a father.”

Witnesses said the shooting sparked from a beef over a basketball game earlier in the day.

“Heated attitudes got the best of them,” one man said.

Anti-violence activist Iesha Sekou said she feared retaliation. “The mayor is worried about sodas, and we got four people shot,” she said.

Two black men wearing white shirts were seen running from the scene, one police source said.
