On Friday night (August 19), a shooting in Los Angeles involving Georgia rapper Quando Rondo led to viral reports that he was shot, but the shooting didn’t injure him.
“Quando was involved in a shooting yesterday evening which resulted in the untimely death of another young man’s life; he himself didn’t sustain any injuries during the shooting and is safe,” according to Quando Rondo’s team.
In a video that was broadcast by ABC7 and Fox 11 Los Angeles, Quando could be seen at the scene looking visibly “distressed” as officers removed the victim from the vehicle.
Three men in a white car parked beside the black Cadillac Escalade of Rondo and his entourage at a gas station began shooting. It was found that the victim, a 23-year-old man, had been shot in Quando’s vehicle. Following the shooting, the victim was pronounced dead at the hospital after he was transported there.
In Los Angeles, Quando Rondo is reportedly injured in a shooting that occurred Friday (August 19), while his friend Lul Pab was fatally wounded. Several reports indicate that the rapper was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition.
An individual who identified as his aunt posted an update on her Instagram Stories around 11:30 p.m. local time and assured everyone that he is doing fine.
The woman explained, “I love everyone, but please give my family time to call me. You guys are clogging my line. We’re fine. Maybe I should reword it; he’s fine. I spoke with him myself.”
She added, “I know y’all are concerned, but please stop calling me!!! Please understand I can’t talk to him [and] not none of the people I need to be talkin’ to for him if y’all keep calling!! I just kept answering because I think y’all him! Please stopppppp.”
