MORRIS HEIGHTS, Bronx (WABC) --

A 21-year-old man was fatally shot in a Bronx playground Tuesday evening, apparently when he became caught in the crossfire of a gang dispute.

Authorities say Yunior Manon was shot in the back of the head while sitting on a bench inside Morton Playground in Morris Heights just before 7:30 p.m.

The gunman appeared to have been aiming at another group in what may be a gang-related shooting, police said.

Video obtained exclusively by Eyewitness News shows people running for their lives as bullets fly at the playground. Minutes later, officers with flashlights can be seen walking through the area.
