    Normally known for their peaceful demeanor, Hip Hip fans gathered outside Universal Citywalk to enjoy an impromptu DJ battle... Sadly, and to the dismay of many, the frivolity ends in gunplay

    An investigation was underway Monday after a man was killed in an officer-involved shooting at Universal CityWalk, authorities said.

    The incident occurred in the early morning hours at the popular entertainment destination, which is located in Universal City.

    Officers responded to CityWalk after receiving a report of a disturbance at 1:15 a.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Barry Montgomery.
    When they arrived at the scene, officers heard gunshots outside in a “common area” of CityWalk. An officer then opened fire after seeing someone with a gun, Montgomery said.
    The man, identified by police as a “suspect,” was pronounced dead at the scene by the L.A. County Fire Department. His identity has not yet been released.
    A handgun has been recovered by police, Montgomery said.

    One witness who happened to be recording video on her cell phone when the shooting occurred said a fight broke out during a battle of disc jockeys at a club before shots were fired.“It got out of hand, and then you see everyone fighting… I don’t know, that’s crazy,” said the unidentified witness, who also shot the cell phone video. “I don’t know how this could happen at CityWalk, a place where family… I mean, snaaaaaap, come on.

    At least two shots could be heard, according to the cell phone video, but it was not immediately clear who fired them.
    Several people were injured and were transported to a hospital, according to Montgomery. He added the injuries were minor and had been sustained while trying to escape, and were not as a result of gunfire.

    No officers were injured.

    Law enforcement personnel remained at the hours after the shooting occurred. Multiple agencies, including the LAPD and the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, were investigating the incident, according to Montgomery.

    I know the Hip Hip community normally goes to great lengths to ensure their events are family friendly & free from violence... That's why I was so taken aback by this

    You could have saved a bunch of keystrokes if you'd just written what's in your heart; Boons gonna boon.


    Big-Boy needs a white hood.
