Rapper Baby Blue entered a medical facility to receive emergency care after he had been shot.
This week, multiple news outlets revealed that Baby Blue is in critical condition after suffering from a gunshot. The incident reportedly happened outside a bowling alley in Miami, Florida, and two armed robbers remain at large.
In an article posted by The Shade Room, it has been confirmed that Baby Blue is one of the two victims in the parking lot.
The Davie Police Department detailed that the rapper and another unnamed individual were in the parking lot when two unknown shooters approached them. An attempted robbery of a gold chain necklace happened before one of the suspects fired a firearm.
The responders immediately transported the victim who sustained the gunshot wound to the local hospital and in critical condition. Unfortunately, the victim in question was Baby Blue. Graphic footage also emerged online, showing the singer on the parking lot's floor while a bystander was screaming for help.
The police department launched an investigation into the shooting to trace the suspects. The current available information states that the suspects were wearing black and grey hoodies.
Meanwhile, the rapper reportedly visited the bowling alley to celebrate the release of his latest single. A few hours ago, he released "Jerry Rice" on his official YouTube Channel. S.E. Trill produced the song.
In the past years, he has been trying to bloom in a solo music career. Before "Jerry Rice," he collaborated with Jacquees for "Satisfied." His former group, Pretty Ricky, was also planning to release new music for their Millennium Tour. However, the pandemic halted their plans and canceled their scheduled tours.
