A White Plains man was charged with shooting all five people hit by gunfire during last week's basketball game at Harlem's Rucker Park.

Police say 24-year-old Ricardo Laing was charged with five counts of attempted murder.

Laing was arrested Saturday in Yonkers and was picked out of lineups by witnesses the next day. None of the five victims in the Wednesday night shooting suffered life-threatening injuries.

Laing has a lengthy arrest record and has served time in the Westchester County Jail.

The Entertainment Basketball Classic hoped to resume their basketball tournament Monday night, but police remained at the court.

Organizers said safety is important to them, but they would like to get on with the games. Three NBA players are expected to attend the tournament Tuesday.
