Tyga and his crew passed through Omaha, Nebraska on Monday night for a concert, but some trouble that began during the show triggered a shooting incident later in the night. Police officials in Omaha have confirmed to MTV News that two members of Tyga’s entourage were shot when suspects opened fire on the Young Money rapper’s tour bus.
Tyga’s artist Honey Cocaine, real name Sochitla Sal, took to Twitter early Tuesday morning (March 20) and confirmed that she was one of the people shot. “Got shot and I’m not dead. #LoveLifeAndGod,” she wrote.
The police report confirms that Honey was struck in the arm and was transported to Creighton University Medical Center. The second victim, Derrick Lowe, was grazed in his hip and refused treatment at the scene.
The confrontation began while Tyga was onstage getting set to perform his hit single “Rack City,” the last song from his set. A group of concertgoers began to throw things on stage, which seemed to infuriate the rapper. Footage of the incident made its way to YouTube shortly after. In the clip, an enraged Tyga begins shouting, “Who threw it?” before urging the culprit to see him outside after the show.
The report cites a disturbance at the concert hall and states that Tyga and company were followed by a black four-door sedan as they left the scene in their van. Police observed several bullet holes in the victim’s vehicle, but no one was seriously injured. The investigation is ongoing, police say.
On February 29, Honey Cocaine joined Tyga when he appeared on “RapFix Live” and spit a verse for the camera. The Toronto MC also sat and chopped it with Sway about her plans for the future with Tyga. “Me, I’m building,” she said. “We’re building together, but we both do our own thing.”
