Pretty Ricky group member Baby Blue is in the hospital, fighting for his life in Davie, Florida.
According to reports, Baby Blue and a friend were targeted by two armed suspects at the Sparez Bowling Alley. The rapper was promoting his new single, “Jerry Rice,” when things went left on April 19th, according to reports.
The two suspects approached Baby Blue and attempted to snatch his gold chain, which sparked a brawl.
Baby Blue, born Diamond Blue Smith, was shot in the upper left chest. He was sent to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
The cops are looking for the two suspects. One was wearing a black hoodie with a face covering, and the other suspect was dressed in a grey hoodie with face covering as well.
The shooting is the latest bad news for Baby Blue.
