The tragic incident happed about 40 minutes past midnight on Monday at a park near 139th Street and Fifth Avenue in Harlem. What caused the shootings remain unclear at the moment, but the assailants may have been tipped off by a video that Rich Rhymer posted on Instagram about the cops shutting down his video shoot at a specific address, before indicating that the activities would resume somewhere nearby.

Shortly thereafter a plethora of gunmen showed up at the father’s day BBQ/music video shoot and left behind devastation that resulted in nine people being shot, including a 21-year-old basketball player known by locals as “Harlem’s Angel,” Darius Lee.
