On the early morning of March 2, Sean “Diddy” Combs’ party had a tragic end at the CIAA Tournament weekend in Charlotte. Diddy, Future, and Fabolous were hosting an after party on the night that the game between Winston-Salem State University and Livingstone College occurred. There were several shots fired at the after party in the mist of the fun and partying following the game that night.
Charlotte observer reports:
Two men were shot in the leg early Sunday during a party that featured rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs and took place after the CIAA tournament, according to police and witnesses.
The shooting happened about 2 a.m. in a ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel, sending thousands of CIAA fans and others streaming onto McDowell Street early Sunday.
Police have not released the names of the victims or said whether they had any connection to Combs or other headliners at the venue. They also haven’t announced arrests or suspects in the shootings. The investigation is ongoing, Lontz said.
The shooting happened in a gated-off raised VIP stage area.
Diddy was recently in the mix of gunfire at Rick Ross Mastermind release party in Atlanta. That promotional event was cut short by gunshots on the scene. The entire hostile environment stigma followed Diddy to the CIAA after party setting.
The weekend of CIAA games included the arrest of 12 adults on various charges according to city officials. There has not been any arrest made for the shooting at the party that Diddy hosted with Fabolous and Future. The CIAA Tournament Commissioner, Jacqie Carpenter confirmed that the hotel after party was not an official CIAA- sanctioned event, so she made no comments on its tragic end.
Diddy who has been having some beef with 50 Cents was not injured in the party disaster. The two men that were hit by the gunfire are expected to recover.
