Police in Gary, Indiana were called to the scene of a concert headlined by Waka Flocka Flame Friday after a fight broke out leaving 8 people shot and injured.
As previously reported, Waka got into a fight of his own Thursday at a popular Atlanta clothing store with members of Young Jeezy’s entourage that left him with his eye blackened.
Now police report that things almost turned deadly at one of his concerts in the Midwest.
According to the Post-Tribune a hype man for Waka Flocka might be to blame for the incident. The unidentified man took to the stage at World of Skates before the rapper came and reportedly pitted the eastside of the city versus the westside.
That’s when police say fighting ensued and patrons were told to leave.
Shots were fired outside of the club leaving Shaquille Hughes, 15, shot in the right side; Marcus Ratliff, 14, shot in the right wrist; Justin Bodley, 16, shot in the leg; Junan Washington, 18, shot in left ankle; DaVonte Biddings, 16, shot once in the back; Marquel Croock, 16, shot in the stomach; Kesean Philon, 14, shot in the left leg; and Stephan Danzy, 17, shot in the left leg
One of the teens says the shooter was a Black man holding a rifle. He reportedly wore a red hat and had dread locks.
Activities for people under the age of 21 have been cancelled until further notice.
