Popular Los Angeles rapper Slim 400 was shot 10 times last night in Los Angeles. Police say that the rapper, real name Vincent Cohran, was rushed to Cedars Sinai hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds, at least half of which hit his torso.
The L.A. rapper was shot in Compton, a few miles from where legendary rapper Nipsey Hussle was gunned down.
Podcaster Adam Grandmaison, known as Adam22, tweeted: “Slim 400 got shot 10 times and is currently in the hospital. Pray for him.”
Right now police are searching for evidence connected with the shooting. They are looking through surveillance footage to determine what happened, as well as possible suspects.
The shooting came exactly three months after rapper and community advocate Nipsey Hussle was fatally struck in front of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles in a murder that HipHopDX reported sent shockwaves through the city.
