5 Hurt in Shooting That May Be Linked to Singer, Police Say

March 13, 2000|Reuters

ATLANTA — Five people were injured in Atlanta on Sunday when 10 to 15 shots were fired at a limousine in an attack that could be related to a fight involving a popular female rap singer, police said.

Two armed men fired at the vehicle as it entered a gated apartment complex in north Atlanta, police spokesman John Quigley said.

He said none of the five people in the limousine suffered life-threatening wounds in the shooting early Sunday morning. The three women and two men injured were all from the Atlanta area, Quigley said.

Police were investigating whether the incident involved rapper Da Brat, who is accused of striking and seriously injuring another woman during a fight at a nightclub in Atlanta on Tuesday.

Da Brat, who is scheduled to open for Mariah Carey on a tour beginning Thursday in Los Angeles, was charged with felony aggravated battery.
