“I was on my way to the ATM and I heard bullets start flying by,” the witness told HipHopDX. “I saw people falling down. It was like mass hysteria. I couldn’t see who got shot. We just started running and didn’t look back. I just kind heard it happening. I couldn’t really tell how many people got shot because so many people were falling. Everyone scattered and were climbing over each other to get away.”
Prior to the incident, the Atlantic Records signee was celebrating the release his debut album, the aforementioned Victory Lap, and appeared to be in good spirits. The Los Angeles native posted several photos to his Instagram account highlighting the event.
