Speculation raged like a wildfire concerning who was the intended target in the hours and days after a furious fusillade of gunfire erupted in the picturesque, manicured streets of Beverly Hills, California, arguably the world’s most famous suburban community.
The video, obtained by TMZ, clearly shows a vehicle that’s pulling up to the location where Tekashi, 22, and Kanye, 41, were on the set and awaiting Nicki Minaj’s arrival, according to Hot New Hip Hop.
In the video, two men are captured exiting a vehicle once it stops. At approximately 10:30 p.m., one hooded person says to another, “We got 30 seconds,” and the other responds, “OK.”
After those words, the men commenced with spraying the area with gunfire. They raised their guns over the wall and unloaded their clips indiscriminately. They showed no concern as to where the bullets were going and who could have been shot, including innocent bystanders and children.
After violent noise pierced the quiet night, the two hooded men raced back to their car and left skid marks from the scene. The video also captured a second car trailing behind the first car, leaving many speculating that perhaps it was a professional hit or a contract that the shooters were carrying out.
According to TMZ, those bullets were targeting Nicki Minaj’s dressing room. It was Tekashi’s dressing room originally, but the decision was made at the last minute that Minaj should have the room. The publication goes on to say that the shooters had inside information, because that room was specifically targeted, with one bullet piercing the window.
