According to TMZ, Rich the Kid's NBA All-Star Weekend concert was interrupted after a man in the parking lot outside the nightclub he was performing in was spotted brandishing a firearm. Cops were called to the scene, and their response was captured by TMZ as well:
Despite that dramatic footage, neither a suspect, nor weapon, was found.
TMZ has been busy over the two-plus days that the NBA world has been centered in Los Angeles, as they also captured Twista getting into a fight shortly after leaving a party for Michael Jordan's birthday. The Chicago rapper had reportedly taken offense to a man heckling a woman on a shuttle bus escorting them from the mansion where the celebration took place.
Additionally, Nipsey Hussle's album release party was derailed on Saturday night after a person was shot in the parking lot outside that event. It is not clear if Nipsey was at the venue at the time that that incident occurred. The shooter had fled by the time police showed up, and the victim refused to cooperate with the investigation. You can see a brief clip of the aftermath of that shooting below:
Despite all of the craziness surrounding the weekend, the events have been pretty interesting. The Phoenix Suns' star Devin Booker won the JBL Three-Point Contest with a record-breaking performance, beating out favorites Klay Thompson and Kyle Lowry. The Slam Dunk contest didn't disappoint either, although some believe Cleveland Cavs player Larry Nance was cheated. The Utah Jazz's standout rookie Donovan Mitchell won the contest.
