Rapper Boosie shot after attending a Mo3 vigil
Rapper Boosie Badazz was shot Saturday afternoon near Big T Plaza in Dallas, according to a Dallas police report.
Police confirmed that officers responded to an armed encounter around 2:00 p.m. on Saturday near Big T Plaza on Village Fair Drive just north of Ledbetter.
Boosie was simply visiting to show his respect for Mo3, a fellow rapper. Mo3 was killed on Wednesday while driving on the Interstate. The shootings are said to be unrelated.
Mo3 was chased as soon as he left his friend’s house. Mo3 whose real name is Melvin Noble did not cooperate with police. He failed to tell police where he was shot. He later died from his injuries.
