1 dead, 4 hurt after BET Awards party shooting in East Hollywood
sun-sentinel.com ^ | June 29, 2014 | Howard Blume

One person was killed and four others injured after a man opened fire at an overnight party early Sunday in East Hollywood to celebrate the upcoming Black Entertainment Television Awards.

The assailant was a lone gunman who is still at large, said Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The shooting occurred at 5:17 a.m., when the gunman fired several rounds, Madison said. Ambulances transported three victims to a local hospital, where one died. The two others arranged their own hospital transportation.

Investigators have not released information about the victims. The coroner’s office said early Sunday that it had not yet received the case.

a man opened fire at an overnight party early Sunday in East Hollywood to celebrate the upcoming Black Entertainment Television Awards.

Which was done with intent to celebrate: the party, or the opening fire?

The gunfire was to boost someone’s street cred (either the shooter or the victim’s).

Only one dead, only four hurt - not that big of a deal, I guess.

Wonder what the count is in Chicago for the weekend so far?

Ain’t “real” until someone is DEAD, huh…?

I’m glad the *whole world* is seeing this..!

Saves lots of taxi drivers and 7-11 clerks.

“BET parties and rap concerts are apparently very dangerous.”

Reading news reports such as these, one might come to the conclusion that one ethnic group might be more prone to violence than others.

But that would be racist, wouldn’t it?

Perhaps the pate was not chilled? Wine not the right vintage? Dear me, good help is SO hard to find nowadays.

And John Derbyshire was called a racist for daring to say whites should avoid gatherings of black people.

I’m not surprised. As someone else posted, there have been 27 shootings in Chicago this weekend. And of course there’s the Pride Parade, too.

You couldn’t pay me enough to visit, much live in that hellhole.

Wait till next weekend when the fireworks will mask the gunshots. Chicago will be like Mogadishu, only not as safe.

Just wait until the “Taste Of Chicago”. I understand that they give the catered-to constituency free tickets.

How long will OHSA allow the bloodshed to continue?

It seems as if every BET event has fatalities?

It was always said that a death or dismemberment would bring the compliance officers!

This is clearly workplace violence! This should have been a fun event for the multi million dollar rap industry.

Oh, its 0bama’s people.
Never mind.
