The father of Atalanta rap sensation Rich Homie Quan was shot four times in his own barbershop on Monday and is now hospitalised in a stable condition.
Rich Homie Quan was set to be celebrating the release of the Rich Gang project today alongside Birdman and Young Thug but is instead at his father’s bedside in an Atlanta hospital. Quan’s father, Corey Lamar, was shot four times by a lone gunman in the barbershop that he owned.
“I heard about three gunshots, and so I saw the guy come out,” said witness Van White. “He got in a black car, and that’s all I know from there.”
According to TMZ, who spoke with Quan’s representatives, the shooting was the result of an attempted robbery. Local Atlanta news is reporting that this is the second time Corey Lamar’s barbershop has been targeted in recent weeks.
