8 Teens Shot at Wacka Flocka Concert

Posted by Media Outrage on March 8, 2010

A brawl erupted at a Wacka Flocka concert in Gary Indiana, which resulted in 8 teens being shot:

Via AHH:

Eight teenagers were shot after a performance by Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flames late Friday evening (March 5) in Gary, Indiana.

Waka Flocka Flames performed at the World of Skates skating rink.

During the event, a fight broke out, prompting security to order all patrons to leave the venue.

As 200 teens waited in the parking lot, a gunman or gunmen opened fire on 200 teenagers who were waiting for their rides. “Our kids are kids.

“They’re teenagers that came to a venue and saw a rapper perform and then went home. As far as I’m concerned, my kids have nothing to do with what was going on,” World of Skates manager James Sisson told the Post-Tribune.

The wounded teens were taken to St. Catherine Hospital, Methodist Hospitals and Saint Margaret Mercy in Hammond, Ind, where they were treated for non-life threatening wounds.

Police accused Waka Flocka’s hype man of inciting the crowd by pitting the “East side” against the “West side,” which may have started the fight Police Cmdr. Michael Mallett told the Post-Tribune.

 “The kids have separated themselves into east and west sides,” Mallet said. “They’ve been doing it for many years now, but it’s gotten worse, especially when you have entertainers making references to East Side vs. West Side. The youth in our community have taken it to heart.”

No arrests have been made as of press time.

    When will these people wake up and realize that after you die over senselessness, whereever you rep will still be around? Guess they’re willing to die for their hood or whatever. This is all so stupid and been happening for years. Ignorance at its best.
    And what in the hell does somebody with a name like wacka flocka could possibly be rappin’ about? I know damn sure nothing that I would listen to.

    A rap concert at a SKATING RINK? The “event” was doomed from the start. And then, the stupid-ass manager’s comment about “his kids have nothing to do with what was goin on.” Well guess what Mr. Skating Rink Manager – YOU have EVERYTHING to do with this. When his hype man start talking that East Side vs. West Side BULLSHIT, the show should’ve came to a SCREECHING HALT. Anytime you throw a bunch of teens together for a rap concert, you MUST have a HEAVY POLICE PRESENCE – period.

    This could’ve been avoided altogether.

      He’s a wack ass rapper out of ATL. If you think the name is bad, don’t listen to the music. You may lose about 10% of your brain cells for each min you listen to it. Straight garbage.

  10. Shannon G. said

    SMDH! Why did the manager make that crazy ass comment about his kids not being involved? And why in the blue hell is a rapper even performing @ a damn skating rink? I know this coming generation is in some serious trouble listening to this wack ass!
