The attorney of rapper Spotemgottem wants people to know that his client was not involved in a shootout.
“He is alive, most importantly,” Raven Liberty told the Miami Herald, “This was not a shootout. He was a victim of a drive-by shooting.”
According to local news reports, the rapper was shot multiple times early Friday morning in Pembroke Pines.
According to Pembroke Pines police, an officer was conducting routine patrol shortly before 3:15 a.m. when he heard what he believed to be the sound of gunshots coming from a parking lot at the southwest corner of Pines Boulevard and University Drive.
Officers arrived at the scene, but found no suspects or victims. Multiple shell casings were found in the parking lot.
Police said a victim from the shooting, later discovered to be Spotemgottem, was located a short time later at a local hospital suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and remains in critical condition.
The rapper’s fans are praying for his recovery.
