Breaking News: Shootout Erupts at Rick Ross' Be Out Day
This afternoon's Be Out Day sponsored by Rick Ross Charities, Inc. was supposed to be about positivity, voter registration, and helping the kidz - apparently some fools didn't get the memo. At around 4:24 p.m. fights and gunfire broke out at Carol City Park.
FloRida was performing Rick Ross, City of Miami Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson and State Representative Oscar Braynon II were on stage when the bullets started to fly. Just moments before, a couple of dudes wearing "Fuck FloRida" tee shirts had stormed the stage only to be removed by security. Fortunately Flo got lowlowlowlolow enough to dodge the bullets and was unharmed. No word on whether anyone was hurt yet, but we'll update this post as soon as we find out more information.
UPDATE: The whole shebang was shut down around 4:40.
UPDATE to the UPDATE: Check further coverage and comments from Ross here.
