A man shot at Freddie Gibbs last night, striking two members of his entourage following his sold out performance at Rough Trade records on Wythe and North 9th st. From the NY Post:
Gibbs’ crew had barely rolled one block away when the gunman – dressed in a dark hoodie – ran up to their ride and fired several shots inside, the rapper said.
“They tried to kill Tupac. They tried to kill me,” Gibbs told The Post outside the club. “I’m still alive.”
Asked why he would be targeted, Gibbs said: “I’m Freddie Gibbs. They tried to kill me, but I’m still alive.”
The Post also reports that the gunman was ‘stalking’ the rapper and his entourage inside the store earlier in the night:
“At one point, he [the shooter] was standing right next to you,” the investigator said. “The opportunity was there if he wanted to shoot.”
One victim was hit in the leg attack, and the other in the hand. Both are expected to survive their wounds, police said.
