From the reporting so far it seems that this young man was targeted and executed. If this is happening in Baltimore this can happen in your neighborhood. Will House Democrats have a sit-in regarding this??? Rest In Peace…
Lor Scooter, a “rising 23-year-old rapper” from Baltimore was ambushed and killedleaving a rally to end gun violence. He “was gunned down in broad daylight on a busy intersection in the city on Saturday, after the shooter jumped in front of the musician’s car and opened fire.”
Law enforcement believe it was a targeted attack.
“A kid that has been involved in a number of different rallies for peace throughout our city is the latest victim of crime here in Baltimore,” a Baltimore police spokesman told reporters at a press conference on Sunday.
An hour before he was murdered, Scoota, also known by his real name Tyriece Travon Watson, was at the “Touch the People” charity basketball game at Morgan State University.
The shooter wore a white bandana and jumped into the street, shooting Scooter through the car.
Scooter was a regular attendee at peace rallies and gave back to the community by reading books about Martin Luther King Jr. to children.
“I never had my rapper or local rappers do that for me growing up, just wanted to give the kids that experience and memory,” Scoota wrote on his Instagram page.
A Baltimore police spokesman, said Scoota had touched many lives and served as an inspiration to the city’s kids, providing new uniforms, equipment and gear.
Police are still searching for the killer and any details or motives behind the shooting.
