Rapper Fabolous Loses Friend In Drive By Shooting
We are sad to report that a violent shooting has claimed the life of a Brooklyn producer who was also a close friend to rapper Fabolous.
According to NY Daily News reports:
A hip hop producer who’s a friend of rapper Fabolous was killed when a gunman opened fire on his SUV in Brooklyn, police sources said.
Eric (Carl) McKinney, 31, tried to drive himself to the hospital shortly after a man shot him as he sat in his black Jeep Wrangler that was parked at Ashland Place and Fulton St. around 10:40 p.m. Sunday, police said.
He crashed the car at Ashland and DeKalb Ave. in Fort Greene and died after emergency workers rushed him to Brooklyn Hospital Center.
McKinney, a father of three, was a hip-hop producer, family told NBC New York.
His brother, Shamel McKinney, 25, was fatally stabbed in a Flatiron club in 2007.
The two men were both longtime friends with the Brooklyn-born rapper Fabolous, who took to Instagram to mourn McKinney’s death.
Police had made no arrests in the killing and the motive was not immediately clear.
This ish is just crazy. We are so sad for his kids and family. Fab posted a number of dedication posts.
It is such a terrible thing to lose someone. Definitely praying for all those grieving right now.
McKinney was also Rugs’ brother
