Fatal Shooting at Boosie Badazz Video Shoot Leaves 1 Man Dead, 4 Injured
A fatal shooting happened near the filming of a rap video featuring rappers Boosie Badazz and Baby Soulja in Jacksonville, Fla., on Saturday (Feb. 25).
According to News4Jax, one man was shot and killed and four other people were injured when a gunman opened fire at a crowd of people outside of Holley's Bar-B-Q where the video shoot was supposed to take place.
The one person who was found dead has been identified as Kyree Corley. His brother told News4Jax that he just dropped him off at the video shoot before he went inside a nearby store. "I heard screaming and people was running once I got out of the store," he said.
The four other victims were rushed to local hospitals, two by rescue medics and the others by personal vehicles. All were treated with non-life-threatening injuries.
Boosie announced on his Instagram page that a video shoot was supposed to take place at Holley's Bar-B-Q but there's no word if the filming actually took place. In the meantime, police don’t have a motive for the shooting and don’t know how many shooters were involved. They are also unclear of what type of gun was used in the shooting.
Police say that over 30 people were outside of the restaurant and on their smartphones filming personal videos when the gunfire erupted. Homicide detectives are asking for the public’s help in submitting any videos to police to help them find out who did the shooting.
Reps for Boosie Badazz had no comment on the matter. Despite the shooting, the rap vet did managed to get some work done and perform at his scheduled show in Jacksonville, Fla.
