That an "aspiring rap artist" nearly died of gunshot wounds is hardly news, but when the shooter turns out to be the shootee's bro, that's news! So here's this month's nomination for a Darwin Award (Honourable Mention).
Early last Saturday, 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.
The owner of the store, one Ali Abdul [No relation to Apu Nahasapeemapetilon? Ed.] told the New York Daily News, "They were fighting over who's the star, who's better. They were drunk. They spit at each other then one guy pulled out a gun and shot the other guy five times."
Did you notice that the gunman never let go of his drink during the shooting? How cool is that! The video shows several cool witnesses casually stepping over the victim as he writhed on the floor in pain. The victim is in critical condition at a local hospital and is expected to survive. The shooter remains at large. He is described as black [that's enough description... Ed.]
