Early Tuesday (Nov. 4) after performing in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, a gunman shot at rapper Freddie Gibbs and another person as they sat in a SUV outside of the record store Rough Trade. According to the police, at 1:13 am on North 9th street near Wythe avenue a gunman dressed in a dark hoodie ran up to the GMC Denali they were sitting in and fired several shots.
“They tried to kill Tupac,” he told the New York Post at the scene of the shooting. “They tried to kill me. I’m still alive.”
After watching security footage, investigators informed the Indiana native that the gunman was at his performance and was keeping an eye on him the whole night. At one point, he was standing right next to Gibbs.
“He was standing around you guys all night,” an investigator told the Eastside Slim rapper. “He was stalking you guys. We can tell on camera he wanted it to look like he knew you, but it’s clear he didn’t. When you guys left, he was waiting for you outside.”
Gibbs took to his Instagram two hours after the shooting and posted a pic with the caption, “Yep. Still Livin. Thanks NYC.”
Between Gibbs and the other person that was shot, one was shot in the hand while the other was shot in the leg.Who suffered which injury was not specified. Both are recovering at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital. No arrests have been made.
