Shooting After Jim Jones Rap Concert in VA Beach


One person died and three others were injured in a shoot-out that erupted early this morning (Sept. 22) after a Virginia concert last night by Dipset rapper Jim Jones, sources reported.

The shooting occurred around 2 a.m. at the Miami Restaurant and Lounge in Virginia Beach.

Witnesses allege that multiple shots were fired, and one male victim was taken away in an ambulance after the club was placed on lockdown by local police.

"The shooting occurred when the club was clearing out," Virginia Beach Police media relations officer Margie Long told "We are still conducting interviews, because there were numerous shooters. One victim died and the [other] victims suffered serious injuries. One victim was flown out by helicopter to [a] local trauma center."

The name of the victim was not released, pending notification of next of kin.

No arrests were made in the shooting, and the motive of the crime is being investigated.

In July, a concert featuring fellow Dipset member Juelz Santana turned violent at a club in Allentown, Penn.

Two people were arrested and four were treated for minor injuries in that incident.

One of the wackest rappers to ever grip a microphone comes to my fair city and I didn't know about it?? I'm slipping in my own age, if I'd known that he was coming I would have picketed him with civil rights era signs, alerting everyone to his proverbial wackness. I would have made it known via megaphone that listening to Jim Jones is like hearing a constipated turkey, just with less of a vocabulary. Rest in Peace to the gentleman who lost his life last night, but I just know that Peter is asking him at the Pearly gates, "What in the fuck were you doing at a Jim Jones show anyway?"

The sad thing is that I knew someone who went to Club Miami that fateful night. Thank God they came out safe, but now I know that our musical tastes are vastly different!


Yes, my boy actually opened up for him that night and like diva said about her friend, we also have different taste obviously. There are spirits behind the music that bring forth a certain energy. All that gunbusting Imma thug and I wanna be hardcore brings out that crowd and unfortunently it does not surprise me when it went down. I feel very sorry for the man that was killed. My friend who opened up for them said the dude was killed in front of him and his boy was one of the wounded, grazed by a bullet on the face and leg. Its really unfortunate that "hip hop" has to get such a bad name with these wack emcees who breed hate and bring that negative energy in their songs. Music can either tame the savage beast or fuel the savage even more.
