Multiple reports say that rapper Kodak Black was among the four people injured outside a restaurant when shots were fired following a Justin Bieber concert at an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood, Los Angeles early Saturday morning.
Kodak Black, Gunna, and Lil Baby came out of the restaurant onto the street where a scuffle was happening when gunshots were fired. Kodak Black was shot in the leg.
TMZ wrote that at around 2:45 a.m., all three rappers were standing on the street, smiling and talking; a fight broke out. Kodak took a swing at someone and then … you hear gunshots. In a video on their site you can see someone dressed in pink jumping onto a group just before the shots were fired. It’s unconfirmed if that person was Kodak Black.
The restaurant owner, John Terzian, confirmed to NBC News that Justin Bieber was hosting an after party inside the restaurant on the night of the shooting.
In a separate report, LAPD said they responded to a call around 2:45 a.m. on the 400 block of North La Cienega Boulevard where they found two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Shots were fired after a fight broke out between several people outside a restaurant and the suspect fled south.
It was originally reported that three people were injured but Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics took two people with non-threatening injuries to hospital. Officers later discovered that two others took themselves to local hospitals. All four are in stable condition.
“Law enforcement tells us there were a total of 10 shots fired with three people hit by bullets and one sustaining injuries some other way,” TMZ wrote.
In the video below from Twitter there were about 11 bangs sounding like gunshots firing off outside The Nice Guy restaurant after the Justin Bieber concert on Super Bowl weekend.
The video shows a scattering crowd of people in a maze of cars running for cover after the gunfire.
Bieber had performed in WeHo at the Pacific Design Center and had an after-party nearby at The Nice Guy in L.A. The guest list included Drake, Leo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, TMZ reported.
Bieber’s wife Hailey, Lil Baby and Kodak Black were among the stars seen entering the late-night event ahead of the shooting. It’s unclear how many of the celebrity guests were still at the party when the shooting took place, Billboard wrote.
Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, Anthony Ramos, Logan Paul and Scooter Braun were among the 1500 people who attended the concert.
Local media say that the neighbourhood has been crowded since Friday with people going to local venues attracting partiers leading up to the Super Bowl game on Sunday. Billboard reported that many bars and restaurants were overflowing with people going up and down Santa Monica Boulevard and La Cienega.
Another party is scheduled for Saturday with Drake as the special guest, amongst a long list of events set to take place over Super Bowl weekend.
