A 22-year-old man died after he was shot on a Brooklyn basketball court, staggered to the park's rest room and collapsed, police said Saturday.

Ellison Butler was standing with friends in Lincoln Terrace Park in Crown Heights when shots rang out just before 8:30 p.m. Friday, witnesses told police.

Butler took a bullet to the chest, but managed to run off the court before he toppled to the ground inside a men's room, police said.

A friend called 911 and paramedics rushed Butler to Kings County Hospital, police said. He died a short time later.
