Unknown assailants fired shots at rapper Snoop Dogg and his entourage yesterday as they were traveling in Los Angeles, according to reports. Police reports dispatched last night (April 10) that one of the rapper’s bodyguards – a police officer – was shot in the melee, but Snoop escaped without harm.
The rapper was traveling with a fleet of vehicles, which consisted of seven bodyguards and two state police officers.
About 9:00 p.m. (PST), Snoop and the crew were moving through Los Angeles when a car eased along side of them blasting two of the cars in the convoy. The gunman and members of the entourage reportedly spoke to Snoop Dogg prior to shots being fired.
The wounded off-duty police officer was admitted to the hospital and then released today (April 11). Snoop was subsequently questioned by the police, but no charges are expected to be levied against the 31-year-old rapper.
