Man shot while filming shooting at Ohio basketball court

Disturbing viral video shows a man carrying a high-powered rifle stalking basketball players on an Ohio court — before the man filming it is injured after more than a dozen shots ring out.

The footage — recorded live in Toledo Monday afternoon — initially shows a group playing ball on an outdoor court before some players suddenly turn in alarm to look behind them.

Amid screams as they start fleeing, the video catches a brief glimpse of a shirtless man marching just outside the court’s edge — brandishing what looks like an AR-style rifle.

After an initial volley of at least six shots, at least 10 more sound — seemingly including return fire from a separate weapon — before the man filming screams and drops his camera as he falls to the ground.

“Argh! I got shot! I got shot! Help me, bro — I got shot!” he screams. “I’m gonna die, bro!”

The clip ends with the sound of doors closing as a group appears to help the injured man into a car, with a girl sobbing as the shot man begs, “I don’t wanna die, bro … get me to the hospital, please.”

Jermaine Brown, 23, was in “critical but stable” condition in Toledo Hospital after he was “shot at least one time,” police told The Post.

His exact injuries were not disclosed, and as of Tuesday morning, no suspects had been arrested or weapons recovered, the force said.

A bullet also struck a nearby house, the police report said, with no other reported injuries.

“Arguments in a park in Toledo shouldn’t be leading to life & death situations,” said Black Lives Matter protester Julian Mack, a candidate for Toledo City Council. “We deserve safe parks & recreation free from violence.”

“I’m praying for the young man that was shot in the video& hope for a speedy full recovery. My heart is hurting,” he tweeted.
