MANHATTAN — The NYPD is still searching for suspects in the shooting of a Seton Hall basketball star, who was wounded outside his East Harlem home Sunday morning, police said.

Jeremy Hazell, 24, was hit in the back after an argument turned violent, the New York Post reported.  The wound was not considered life-threatening, the paper said.

He was rushed to St. Luke's Hospital, the paper said, where he was treated and released.

The shooting took place outside the Carver Houses on East 104th Street, the paper reported.

Hazell, a 6-foot-5 forward, chose to remain at Seton Hall for his senior season instead of opting for the NBA draft, the Post said.

"We're going to do whatever is best for Jeremy," Seton Hall Coach Kevin Willard told ESPN. "If he's not going to be 100 percent and it will hurt his draft status or making money the year after, then we'll make the decision to redshirt him."
