ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A pickup basketball game, aimed at keeping teens busy and safe during the summer, was held on Saturday.
Teddy Collins of Rochester organized the tournament.
Teddy lost his own brother to gun violence in 1994, and doesn't want to see similar tragedies in Rochester.
He hopes this tournament can offer kids an alternative to any negative influences in their lives.
"This tournament is a 4 on 4 basketball tournament here at East Park, aimed to keep the teens off of the streets and give the teens something for them to do that's positive in our community," Collins said.
Collins encouraged the general public to attend the event and enjoy some good, competitive basketball.
Games took place Saturday at East Park in Rochester.
