A fan of the rapper died after the shooter opened fire outside of French’s tour bus in Phildelphia. Police say French was hanging out with fans outside his tour bus at the hotel following his performance at the TLA, when someone drove by and started shooting.
A 27-year old man was shot in the stomach, and after being rushed to the hospital he was pronounced dead. A second person was hit in the shoulder, but is in stable condition. Reports say that twenty-five people, including the Moroccan rapper, his entourage and fans are being questioned by the police. Three were taken into custody for carrying guns. The police say that someone fired back after the initial shot.
Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said of shooting, “It’s just ignorant. You fire into a crowd and you’re gonna hit somebody. In this case, unfortunately, someone was killed. Don’t know if they had anything to do with anything, if they were a fan or what.”
