American RnB Singer Chris Brown is lucky to be alive, after being shot at, in the early hours of Sunday, 24 August, at a pre-VMA party at 10AK night club in LA.
The party was hosted by Brown, but he escaped being injured, however, such can not be said for Death Row records founder, Suge Knight, who was shot twice, alongside two other people, with one believed to be in critical condition.
Suge reportedly left the club unaided and was taken to Cedars Sinai hospital. Recent reports have it that he was shot six times, but he’s now out of surgery and expected to make a full recovery.
Others celebrities in attendance at the party, include Black Eyed Peas star ‘Apple de Ap and actors Tyson Beckford and Robert Ri’chard.
Witnesses at the scene claimed that Chris Brown was the target of the shooting, but TMZ said they weren’t exactly sure who the target was.
However, according to a report on MediaTakeOut (MTO), Chris Brown was the target of the shooting.
“Well here’s what happened . . . allegedly. We ain’t trying to snitch on nobody and get no one locked up either. Police need to do they’re job though.
MediaTakeOut.com spies were in the building last night at the 1Oak party and it was a movie. Tons of celebs, and beautiful people too. But it all went south when a group of men tried to murder Chris Brown!!”
“You see, ever since Chris Brown got out of rehab – he’s changed his lifestyle and his circle of friends. Our snitch explains, “Chris used to run with a bunch of gang bangers who were really scary. When he got out [of rehab], he cut them all off. I guess they’re upset about that.”
“The inside snitch tells us that Chris was being THREATENED by his ex-homies . . . and they have been trying to EXTORT MONEY out of him for weeks. Well last night when Chris was at the VMAs it all came to a head. MediaTakeOut.com explained, “It was [Chris Brown's former homies] shooting. And they were trying to hit Chris.”
Luckily we’re told that the men were NOT GOOD SHOTS, and they shot people next to Chris in the VIP instead. Suge Knight was one of the people that were injured.”
Although he is yet to release an official statement about the shooting, Brown has taken to Twitter to voice his disappointment at the incident.
