A video shoot featuring Boosie BadAzz in Huntsville, Alabama ended in gunfire claiming the life of one.
Huntsville Police Department is investigating the shooting, which occurred on Saturday, May 29, on Binford Drive during a Boosie BadAzz music video shoot attended by 50 to 100 people.
HPD Captain Michael Johnson confirmed that a man in his 20s was struck during the gunfire and taken to a local Huntsville hospital where he was initially listed in critical condition. The man later died from his injuries. The victim has been identified as Randall Strong Jr.
Police have arrested a suspect, Christopher Kwan Freeman, and charged him with the killing. Freeman turned himself in to authorities on Sunday morning, May 30, following an overnight manhunt to locate him. The victim has been identified as Randall Strong Jr.
Reports indicate that the shooting may have been preceded by an argument that broke out, which then escalated to gunfire. Video that is allegedly from the incident shows a man who appears to be Boosie in a large crowd of people, some of whom are holding large firearms. They are rapping in unison as a song plays in the background until multiple shots ring out and everyone scrambles for cover.
Boosie escaped unharmed and addressed the shooting on social media denying claims that the bullets were meant for him.
“AINT NOBODY TRY TO KILL ME N HUNTSVILLE AL. YALL M** BE HAPPY TO SPREAD LIES ON ME #LOL”
It is the second time in a year Boosie has been in gunfire incidents after he was previously hit last November in the leg in Dallas, Texas while in town to attend a candlelight vigil for recently murdered Dallas rapper Mo3 who was shot and killed on Nov. 11, 2020.
