According to police, Baby Blue was attacked by two armed male suspects, who tried to steal a gold chain during his single release party at SpareZ Bowling in Davie, Fla. around midnight on Monday (April 19). His brother and fellow Pretty Ricky member, Spectacular Smith, told TMZ that Baby Blue tried to protect him by grabbing the gun from one of the armed robbers and was shot in the process.
He was rushed to a local hospital where his team said he was “fighting for his life.” According to Smith, his brother was placed on a breathing machine and only his mother and father were able to visit him in the hospital due to COVID restrictions.
Video captured from the scene, shared by Hollywood Unlocked, shows chaos in the wake of the shooting. The “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” star can be seen on the floor while those around him call for help and try to administer aid.
