Witnesses tell Albuquerque police a fight broke out inside the Sunshine Theater during a Yo Gotti hip-hop concert and continued into a nearby parking lot where one person was fatally shot.
“What we understand from witnesses a dispute of some sort took place inside of the actual venue and then that dispute spilled out onto the streets,” Albuquerque Police Department spokesperson Tasia Martinez said.
Exclusive KOB-TV video shows the moments after a crowd leaves a rap concert only to get caught in the crossfire.
It happened around midnight at the Sunshine Theater on 2nd Street and Central Avenue.
A man slumped over a green car falls to the ground after being shot in the head. Police and EMS arrived soon after, but it was too late.
The parking lot became a crime scene.
Friends and family showed up and learned the horrific details.
Several blocks were closed for hours as police looked for clues and a suspect.
Sunrise brought out neighbors who described what they heard.
“And we can hear that a concert had been going letting out here at the Sunshine so there were people who were out singing, having a good time, then shots rang out and within 5 minutes the place was just swarming,” said Carolyn Meyer, who lives nearby.
Police are now dissecting KOB’s video and are asking for help in solving this homicide.
“Well it’s horrible. It’s horrible and under any circumstance. It’s something about hearing the shots and knowing that somebody was killed just gets you in the gut,” said Meyer.
Police are looking for a gold, 4-door Maxima or Camry with a spoiler.
The male suspect is believed to be driving the vehicle and is considered armed and dangerous.
A second person is in the hospital after being shot in the arm.
MMG rapper Wale has allegedly confronted “Hip Hop POV” host, Amanda Seales, over some remarks she made about him on her Twitter, and according to Ms. Seales, who was previously known as “Amanda Diva,” Wale went off on her.
Wale and Amanda came head-to-head at Wale’s Roots Picnic performance in Philadelphia this past weekend, where Wale allegedly walked up to Amanda and began yelling in her face. MediaTakeOut reports, witnesses to the confrontation say that Wale allegedly called her a “bum bitch” and allegedly threatened to punch her in the face. Check out Amanda Seales’ account of the incident with Wale:
“I keep being told to “not sweat” that @Wale came in my face trying to fight me ovr a tweet. Y in hip hop do we excuse such behavior? Were I to get an apology then perhaps.But it shld be known that dude is completely out of line with women on a regular basis. Folks say “we expect that from him”. But what does that mean? It’s ok bcuz we all kno of the regularity of such behavior”
In hip hop women r always expected to “be cool” abt completely out of line behavior from our male counterparts. No dice.
At some point, in an intrvw, some1 will ask 4 the whole @wale “tweet fight” story & I’ll gladly tell it. Bcuz it’s part of a bigger issue…”
We hear Wale also allegedly threatened that he was going to tweet out her romantic relationships with various entertainers. Amanda later deleted her tweets. Was it right for Wale to get all up in her face like that over a tweet?
