On July 5, gunfire broke out during a concert staged by MC Foogiano at the South Carolina Nightclub, Lavish Lounge, and devastatingly took the life of Bell.
The Greenville News reports:
“Foogiano, a stage name for Kwame Brown, and Gucci Mane, a stage name for Radric Delantic Davis, are among several defendants accused of negligence in connection with Bell’s death. Foogiano was performing at Lavish Lounge when Bell and nine others were shot. Gucci Mane is referred to as a promoter or promotion company associated with Foogiano’s performance, according to the lawsuit.”
The report goes on to add:
“In total, 10 people were shot and two were killed. Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis said during a press conference in July the shooting was likely gang-related.
Bell was standing near the stage when shots were fired during an altercation. A security guard, Clarence Sterling Johnson, 51, was also shot and killed.”
Per the same report, requests from both Gucci’s and Foogiano’s representatives were not immediately returned.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who lost their lives.
