Rap Party Erupts into Violence – 2 Suspects on the Run
Two killed, one injured.
Jack Hammer, Crime & Justice Reporter – Sometimes I cannot help but think that the Rapper (or Hip Hop, if you prefer) music scene is a death cult. Take, for instance, this true crime story Straight Outta West Memphis.
April 6, 2019 - West Memphis, Ark. – by WREG Staff. According to W Memphis police, the shooting happened around 1:30 a.m. inside the 2nd Chance Automotive Repair and Body Work on East Broadway, West Memphis. The auto repair shop is also used for hosting private club events. A flyer posted to Facebook Friday night showed that the shop was the venue for a concert by Memphis rapper Kevo Money. Witnesses say they were attending a rapper party at the time of the shooting “Just vibin’ (sic), playing music and stuff and just took a wrong turn. Just stuff went south," said witness Dquinton Patterson. "And all of a sudden you just hear, boom boom boom boom boom (sic), like repetitive fire. So, my instinct was automatically to get on the ground so I wouldn’t get hit by a stray bullet. And they’re just continuing shooting... It was like a movie scene or something.” Police say three men were shot at the club. One was pronounced dead on the scene and another died at a local hospital.
Two suspects are on the run, Raheem Stackhouse and Reginald Smith. Below are the full list of charges both men faced in the past, according to court records.
