R.I.P. to the school kids killed in Little Haiti and Liberty City over the weekend, and respect to their families.
Assault weapon shooting sprees are all too common in Miami. And a weekend full of gunfire saw Liberia, Hollywood's own Young Scrilla caught in a hail of bullets between scenes of a music video production in Overtown.
The Tru Story Entertainment artist told the Herald that as he sat idling in a BMW, a car approached from behind and opened fire with two AK 47's and a handgun. His Twitter timeline from just hours later at Jackson Hospital says, "Boy yall dont know the feeling when them thangs being spit at you."
Here is what else we have learned about the shooting, and how Young Scrilla managed to get away.
First of all, here is a still from the video that Scrilla was participating in, a collaboration with Rocko out of Atlanta

Young Scrilla thanks Tru Story Ent co-founder LT for picking him up off the ground while shots were still being fired, and credits him for saving his life.
