One of the five people shot during a basketball tournament at Douglass Park in Lexington last weekend has died, according to the Fayette County coroner's office.
Kwame El-Amin, 42, died from a gunshot wound after he was shot Sunday evening at the park during a basketball tournament.
The five were shot about 9:15 p.m. Sunday. Several officers were at the park when they heard multiple gunshots, police have said.
Three victims were taken by ambulance to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. Two others arrived at hospitals in private vehicles.

El-Amin's slaying was the city's 10th homicide of the year. Three remain unsolved.
El-Amin's family has set up an account online to help pay for funeral expenses.
The Dirt Bowl has been played in the park since the 1960s.
On Monday, Mayor Jim Gray said police were looking for any witnesses of the shooting and were working to determine a motive. Police were working with the NAACP and community leaders to combat the violence that appears to intensify during the summer, he said.
Earlier this month, nine people were shot — and three died — in five shootings within 72 hours.
Montez Graves, 31, and his uncle, Ronnie Graves, 54, were both shot inside two separate vehicles. Jermaine Anderson, 21, has been charged with murder and first-degree assault in connection with the death of Monetz Graves.
A few days later Thomas W. Brown, 55, was shot several times as he slept in his bed with his wife at their home on Gerald Drive.
