Sources report that two men were shot in Holmdel, NJ outside of the 2014 Forest Hills Drive Tour. The shooting took place after the concert was over and witnesses say it happened over an argument in the parking lot:
Reports the New York Daily News:
At least two people were shot outside a concert by rappers J. Cole and Big Sean in Holmdel, N.J. Monday night, police said.
The shooting was reported at 11:14 p.m., after the show headlined by J. Cole finished at the PNC Bank Arts Center, New Jersey State Police Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams told the Daily News. The victims, both men, are at a local hospital in critical condition, he said.
Witness Omayma Bougdour, 18, told the Daily News the shooting happened “over an argument” that broke out in the parking lot.
She said she heard gunshots while walking to her car.
The argument may have started after someone harassed a woman, witnesses say:
Another witness, Mike Lefanto, said he saw the two soon-to-be-victims speaking to a woman in the parking lot, “talking about her body.”
Out of nowhere, a man approached them and fired about seven shots, he said.
“He took those two dudes out right away,” said Lefanto, who was walking to his car with his 13-year-old daughter, Bella. “It looked like he knew what he was doing.”
Wishing speedy recovery to the victims involved and also, a safe rest of the tour to J. Cole and the rest of his tour mates.
