Los Angeles police are continuing their investigation into a shooting outside a Super Bowl weekend party Saturday morning, leaving rapper Kodak Black and three others injured.
Shots rang out around 2:45 a.m. after a fight broke out in the 400 block of North La Cienega Boulevard, LAPD Officer Drake Madison told the Los Angeles Times.
Three men ages 19, 24 and 60 were struck by gunfire, the LAPD said. Multiple media outlets identified the 24-year-old victim as Florida rapper Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri. Details on the fourth person injured were unclear. All four were listed in stable condition and their injuries were not life-threatening.
The violence occurred outside an afterparty at the Nice Guy restaurant following a Justin Bieber concert, TMZ reported. It was apparently triggered by a fight involving Kodak Black.
Video posted by TMZ showed Black standing alongside rappers Gunna and Lil Baby outside the restaurant. Then someone yelled “Oh shit! What?” Seconds later, a crowd could be seen running behind a red Ferrari as the fighting continued.
Of the four people shot, paramedics transported two to an area hospital by ambulance. The two others self-transported for medical treatment.
The shooters remained on the run and no arrests were immediately made.
The afterparty was held following a Justin Bieber concert at nearby Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. The star-studded audience included Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake, Tobey Maguire, and Jeff Bezos.
Kodak Black is no stranger to police. He’s been arrested multiple times and was pardoned by former President Donald Trump in January 2021, as previously reported. He was serving time on a 46-month sentence after admitting to falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms when he was pardoned by Trump.
Prior to that case, Black was arrested in April 2019 on separate gun and drug charges near Niagara Falls, New York, while trying to enter the U.S. from Canada. He faced allegations of criminal possession of a weapon second degree and unlawful possession of marijuana.
The rapper was born Octave Dieuson and later changed his name to Bill Kapri.
