Controversial Rapper Kodak Black and 3 others were shot in a tussle that broke out after Justin Bieber’s after-party in California
Bill Kapri who goes by the rapper name “Kodak Black” was allegedly shot and wounded with 3 others in a tussle outside The Nice Guy restaurant in West Hollywood early Saturday. The incident took place following the after-party for Justin Bieber’s show in Pacific Design Centre.
Kodak reportedly fled the scene and went on to call the police from a nearby location about getting shot. While the paparazzi were circling the location a fistfight broke out between a few people right around the area where Kodak’s group stood. The fight was followed by a number of gunshots and created a clamour among the bystanders.
The scramble resulted in wounding four people aged, 60, 22, 20 and 19, including Kodak Black. The witnesses report that Justin Bieber wasn’t involved in the event, suggesting he wasn’t even aware of the incident. The officers who responded to the scene found two men injured and were rushed to the hospital by the Paramedics.
In a press release by LAPD, it was mentioned that the suspect was a Black Male yet to be identified. The names of the victims are not yet released to the public. Videos posted on TMZ.com and on social media depict Kodak posing for photos with a group of people outside the restaurant when the brawl broke out.
Reports identify Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, Drake, Khloe Kardashian and Toby Maguire among the few who were at the after-party.
Kodak Black also has a previous history of a number of crimes and arrests. He was arrested for possession of weapons in 2016 as well as in 2019, for which he was pardoned by President Donald Trump.
