Nipsey Hussle's "Victory Lap" Release Party Erupts In Gunfire
#DXCLUSIVE: A witness at the scene says it was a mass hysteria.
Los Angeles, CA – Nipsey hustle-and-Bustle of the Back of the Victoria launch party of gunfire broke out late on Saturday night (February 17). The event was sponsored by the iconic World On Wheels in Los Angeles. At least one man was shot and taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, according to police officers at the scene.
A woman attending the party, who asked not to be identified, witnessed the fight.
"I was on my way to the ATM and I heard bullets start to fly," the witness told HipHopDX. "I saw people falling. It was like mass hysteria. I couldn't see who got shot. Just start running and not look back. I just kind of heard what is happening. Really could not say how many people were shot because many people were falling. All were scattered and were climbing over each other to get away."
