This past Friday, a fatal shooting occurred outside of the Dan Foley Park Cultural Center in Vallejo, California, where “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Lil’ Scrappy was performing. According to CBS SF Bay Area, two women were injured during the shooting. When police arrived on the scene, both women were transported to a nearby hospital. One victim died from her wound, the other was treated and released. No further information about the deceased victim has been released, except that she was 34 years old. Investigators believe that neither of the victims were the intended targets in the shooting, and that they simply got caught in between the crossfire during a gun fight involving multiple shooters.
Scrappy’s team released a statement to Mara the Hip Hop Socialite regarding the shooting and vowed to assist with costs relating to the unfortunate event.
“It is disgusting what happened Friday night at the Dan Foley Park concert, wrote Chinga Chang Records CEO, Dan Herman. “On behalf of Lil Scrappy, we at Chinga Chang Records will be assisting with costs related to the shooting. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim who lost her life to such a senseless and heinous crime and hope for immediate justice to these terrorists,” he continued.
So far, no suspects have been apprehended. Motive for the tragic shooting remains a mystery as well. Our prayers go out to those affected by this senseless crime.
