A third man has been arrested in connection to the shootout last weekend that killed a 4-year-old boy.

Ronald Jeffrey, 19, from the Bronx was arrested and charged on Friday with murder, attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Information about who his lawyer is wasn't immediately available.

Police on Wednesday charged 17-year-old Rondell Pinkerton of the Bronx with murder and criminal possession of a weapon. He was held without bail.

Pinkerton confessed to firing a gun during the tournament on Sunday. He told authorities he fired in self-defense.

Twenty-six-year-old Courtney Kelly of the Bronx, who was wounded in the shootout, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

The boy, Lloyd Morgan, died after gunshots were fired in the vicinity of a charity basketball tournament in the Bronx.

Police say about 13 rounds were fired from either side of the court and adjacent  playground where Lloyd was standing with his mother.
