So Dalton... is it just possible that...

...more b-ball courts isn't really the answer?
-- TORONTO -- A squabble on a basketball court turned driveby shooting has become the city's 35th homicide. Shortly after 8 p.m. on Wednesday, police went to a call in the Gilder Drive and Eglinton Avenue East area.

Twenty-two-year-old Zabi Mojadidi was taken to hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest. He died shortly after 1 a.m. on Thursday at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

When the bullets started to fly, there were children playing in the playground neighbouring the court -- a fact that distressed local residents.
