For the second time this week, a Dallas rapper has been shot as police grapple with a spate of violence in the city.
According to reports, a popular rapper – who is also a dentist – was shot inside of his Central Express Way office building just after 9:00 PM on just after 9:00 PM on Thursday night.
Dr. Rose, born Jerret Rosenborough, moonlights as a rapper, with over 150,000 followers on Instagram.
Unfortunately, Dr. Rose was one of three people wounded in a flurry of gunfire that shattered his office windows and riddled his SUV with bullets.
Dr. Rose and the other two victims drove themselves to local hospitals, where they are expected to survive their gunshot wounds.
The cops have no suspects as of press time, and they do not believe the shooting has anything to do with the death of rapper Mo3, who was gunned down on I-35 during an attack on Wednesday.
“My situation is completely unrelated to the death of Mo3, in fact, I’m a fan of Mo3. It hurts my heart to think a small portion of my city would think that I would join in on the controversy,” Dr. Rose said in a statement. “I’m a public figure, the work ethic and love that I put into my patients and community speaks volumes…I am very grateful to be able to say that I am recovering well with my family. I will be taking some time to focus on my recovery during this time. My office staff is working on reaching out to my patients to update them on next steps.”
