Twenty Five People Shot At Rap Show In Little Rock
(AllHipHop News) A rap show in St. Louis, Missouri, was the scene of unimaginable chaos, after a shooting broke out at a popular nightclub where a rapper was performing.
Finese 2Tymes, born Ricky Hampton, 25, of Memphis, Tennessee, was performing at Power Ultra Lounge in downtown Little Rock.
Police said a gang related dispute in the crowd escalated, resulting in a wild shootout that left 25 people with gunshot wounds.
“THE VIOLENCE IS NOT FOR THE CLUB PEOPLE. WE ALL COME WITH 1 MOTIVE AT THE END OF THE DAY, AND THATS TO HAVE FUN,” Finese 2Tymes wrote on his Facebook page.
The message was not enough, since federal marshals arrested the rapper on charges of being a “fugitive from justice.”
Little Rock’s mayor blasted the club, and vowed to shut the venue down for promoting the show, which featured the rapper flashing guns and promotional material for the performance.
“A promotional video with a gun on the front cover inviting people to a concert should also be totally unacceptable in our community,” Mayor Mark Stodola said in a statement.
Fortunately, all 25 people who suffered from gunshot wounds are expected to recover.
