Your Black Gossip reports:
A toddler was shot in the head in West Oakland, CA after being caught in a hail of bullets on a Hip-Hop video set. Six other people were also wounded.
State Market Liquors turned into a bloody crime scene Monday night when gunmen shot 50 bullets into their parking lot.
Salah Abdullah, the store’s co-owner, was inside the establishment when the tragedy occurred. According to the Associated Press, 15 people were outside shooting the video on small cameras, posing with liquor bottles outside of the store’s entrance. When the shots were fired, he ran for cover.
“Everybody was scared,” Abdullah said. “There was yelling and screaming from inside and outside the store.”
Three people in hoodies were captured on surveillance video.
The one-year-old toddler is the cousin of local rapper, Kafani, who was present at the time of the shooting, according to witnesses. He not only denies being there, but also denies ownership of the vehicle. As most people go these days, he posted his cousin’s health update in the Twittersphere:
“Right now now lil cuz in coma but both sides of brain seems to be functioning right now pray pls,” he tweeted.
