Chris Brown is reportedly being targeted by gang members who want him to pay with blood. At least, that's what Pulse News reports about the recent nightclub shooting in San Jose that left at least five people injured. The troubled R&B singer has reportedly cancelled several of his upcoming performances due to the venues being inside of nightclubs, at the request of his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Could these latest rumors be true? If they are, then Chris is probably right to be fearful for his life, as well as the safety of his girlfriend.
The Irish Mirror reports that Chris demanded that his manager cancel all of his club appearances. The reason he reportedly gave was that these nightclubs are "too hood" for his image, which he is reportedly trying to clean up and reform. This coincides with the Instagram photo he posted not long after the shooting, which came with a caption that summed up his feelings about the shooting and the venues that attract them. The photo was a picture of him and Tran.
"No more n***a parties! Only this type of s**t!"Interestingly enough, this shooting may have been prevented. According to a report on the Santa Cruz Sentinel, police reportedly warned the nightclub that a Chris Brown show would potentially attract some kind of violence. The police department encouraged the nightclub to hire more security for the event, but the security that was present was reportedly inadequate. Instead of patting down each of the 700 people who attended the performance, the bouncers allowed waves of people into the nightclub without patting them down and checking them for weapons. This reportedly allowed for the individual(s) who fired into the crowd that injured five people on Sunday morning. Police are still seeking the person(s) responsible for the shooting at the Chris Brown nightclub concert.
It's hard to tell whether or not gangs are truly responsible for the shooting that took place on Sunday, even if some reports are trying to tie this recent shooting with the one that took place several months ago. Many reports have indicated that the recent shooting was the result of a scuffle in the crowd of concert-goers, but until the suspect behind the shooting is apprehended, nobody can really know for sure. In the meantime, Chris Brown is scheduled to perform in San Jose again in March.
