AceShowbiz - More details of a fatal shooting at Yo Gotti's restaurant have surfaced online, albeit unconfirmed ones. Words on the street are one of the victims killed in the incident was the boyfriend of the rapper's sister Robin Mims.
Neither Gotti nor Robin has personally spoken up on the shooting. Meanwhile, reports swirled on the Internet that the gunfire was sparked by a dispute between Robin's ex-boyfriend and her current boyfriend Mame Mane.
Mame Mane has been reported to be one of the men killed in the shooting. Another victim is reportedly a man who goes by the alias Roc. It's said that Robin's ex-boyfriend was firing shots at a group of people and killing her current boyfriend. The identity of the ex-boyfriend is yet to be released.
As reported before, the deadly shooting erupted at a Tennessee restaurant owned by Gotti on Wednesday night, March 29, shortly after it closed. When officers arrived, two male victims were found on the scene. One was pronounced dead in the parking lot and the other was taken to a local hospital where he later died.
Surveillance footage shows a brawl inside the restaurant that led to the shooting. In the video, a tense argument ensued between a man in a red jacket and a man in a blue jacket, who was actually on crutches but handed them to a woman.
It appeared that security managed to separate them, but the fight continued outside in the parking lot. The man in the blue hoodie was seen hopping on one foot and yelling at onlookers, before firing shots with what appears to be a semi-automatic weapon, hitting a man in black several times.
The video then cuts to him hobbling away from the scene as two bodies lied on the pavement. Someone appeared to make a frantic phone call while the assailant fled the scene. He is still at large.
Five others, four men and a woman, arrived at hospitals by private vehicles. The men were ages 37, 35, 31 and 30. The woman was 25 years old. Their conditions are currently unknown.
Gotti, who purchased the restaurant for his mother, was not there during the incident. Following the shooting, Arthur Horne, the owners' lawyer, said in a statement, "On behalf of Prive, they've been in business for 10 years, and nothing like this has ever happened at their establishment." Horne claimed the altercation occurred in the parking lot, not inside the restaurant as stated by authorities.
"It happened out in the parking lot, and it ended up in a shootout," he said. "Nothing happened inside the restaurant. Despite any conflicting reports, they were closing, and this happened at the end of the evening in the parking lot." The owners also extended their condolences to the families of the victims.
