A young man was killed in during a drive-by shooting in Brooklyn late Friday night, police said.

Basheik Reddick, 22, was hanging out with a large group of people drinking alcohol in a Bushwick schoolyard on Madison Street when he was shot around 11:10 p.m., cops said.

Police believe a van with four passengers pulled up next to the park and began shooting into the crowd, hitting Reddick once in the chest.

Reddick was taken to Kings County Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

No one else was injured in the shooting, police said.

No arrests have been made and police said the investigation is ongoing.

Police said the motive of the shooting was still unclear.
