Shooting At Meek Mill Concert – Oakdale Theater, CT

Two people were murdered in a shooting after Meek Mill’s concert in Connecticut.  The incident occurred after the rapper’s show at the Toyota Oakdale Theater.  Two people died and two people were injured.  The two people that were injured are expected to survive.  The video at the end of this post shows Meek Mill exiting the venue.

December 2016 has been real.  The Meek Mill concert shooting is one of many recent tragedies.  Atlanta rapper, Yung Mazi was recently shot along with Brooklyn rapper, Troy Ave.  Meek Mill was just getting back on his feet after being bullied by Drake earlier this year.  The shooting marks yet another obstacle he must overcome.

Similar to the Yung Mazi and Troy Ave incidents, no one was arrested at the Meek Mill concert but the police are still looking for the shooter.

Twitter users hoped the victims would survive as the news spread on social media.

Something must be done about the violence throughout our nation.  Sad stories like this make it difficult to watch the news.

The tweet below was shared by an individual who attended the concert.  The scene had to be terrifying.

Police officers will have to work hard in places like New York City tonight.  December 2016 has been deadly and we’re praying for everyone’s safety.
