Lil Boosie Among Three Rappers Shot in the Dallas Area

Lil Boosie Badazz is the latest rapper to fall victim to violent crime in Dallas, Texas.

According to WTSP, Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., was hit by gunfire while sitting in a bullet-riddled SUV in a parking lot on Saturday afternoon.

He was treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg. Police say Boosie is not providing details of the shooting to investigators. His condition is unknown.

The 38-year-old Louisiana native was in town to attend a vigil honoring rapper Mo3 on Friday night. Mo3, 28, was shot by an unknown assailant on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

Mo3, real name Melvin A. Noble, was approached by a gunman when he stopped his car on the highway. Police say Noble got out of his car and ran southbound on I-35. He was shot in the head and pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police are also investigating a shooting involving rapper/dentist Jerrett Rosenborough, who was shot and robbed outside his dental practice on Nov. 12.

Rosenborough, also known as Dr. Rose, was treated for a gunshot wound and released.

Police say there is no evidence to show the three shootings are related.
