French Montana Tour Bus Shooting: Man Faces Murder Charges
Police say Frank Briggs, 20, of Germantown, Philadelpha, “pulled up in a car and opened fire on a crowd gathered outside rap artist French Montana’s tour bus late Thursday night, after the bus stopped near a Holiday Inn Express on Columbus Boulevard.”
Jowann King, 26, of New York, was killed. A unidentified second man, 28, was also hit, but he survived.
Briggs has been hit with a bevy of charges — murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and weapons offenses, among others.
While French and his crew members are cooperating with the investigation, he’s denied any involvement in the incident.
“My bus was located in the vicinity of the incident that took place last night in Philadelphia,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “I had a peaceful concert and was not involved … My deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to the families of the victims, as well as all of those who were affected.”
