Early Saturday morning, a music video shoot at a Bronx bodega turned violent
after one member of a rap duo reportedly opened fire on his partner, wounding
him in the head, legs, and chest. According to the bodega's owner, the shooting
was triggered by an argument over who was the video's star.
fighting over who's the star, who's better," owner Ali Abdul told the New York
Daily News. "They were drunk. They spit at each other then one guy pulled out a
gun and shot the other guy five times."
The gunman, who, as Gothamist
notes, never lets go of his drink during the shooting, also repeatedly pistol
whipped the 37-year-old victim. The video shows several witnesses casually
stepping over the victim as he writhed on the floor in pain. The suspect remains
at large; the victim is in critical condition at a local hospital and is
expected to survive.
