Default After Monkey Rapper Rich The Kid Flashes Cash, 2 Others Assaulted, Shot at During Robbery


Rapper Rich The Kid, 2 Others Assaulted, Shot at During Robbery Outside West Hollywood Recording Studio: Sheriff’s Department
Posted 5:06 PM, February 12, 2019

Authorities were searching for three suspects who physically assaulted and fired shots at Rich The Kid and two other men outside a West Hollywood recording studio Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

Calls came in at around 3:15 p.m. reporting shots fired in the area of Santa Monica Boulevard at Greenacre Avenue, the Sheriff's Department said.

Abraham Hanoun was driving down Santa Monica Boulevard, on his way to work, when he said he witnessed the incident.

Hanoun said he first noticed a man who appears to be anxious, “in a state of panic.” A silver car then pulled up, and the man turns around, pulled pistol from waist and aimed it at the car, Hanoun said.

“He starts shooting, roughly nine shots,” Hanoun said. “That’s all I remember, just the silver car getting shot at. In the moment I didn’t really pay attention to everything, I just wanted to get out of there.”

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the rapper and two other victims who said that the three suspects confronted them in an alley behind the business and demanded their money and jewelry, according to sheriff's officials.

The suspects then physically assaulted the victims, got into a vehicle and drove away, going westbound, authorities said.

While they were driving away, one of the suspects started shooting a firearm.

None of the victims suffered gunshot wounds. The three were treated at the scene for minor injuries, the sheriff's department said.

About three hours before the assault, the rapper had posted a photo of himself to Instagram with large wads of cash in one hand, the other hand bandaged. The caption reads, "Always in bank mo deposit."
