Fabolous Producer Shot And Killed In Brooklyn
A hip hop producer from Brooklyn died while trying to drive himself to the hospital after he was shot last Sunday night.
The shooting happened just before 11 p.m. Sunday.
Investigators said 31-year-old Eric McKinney, of Brooklyn, crashed his car at Ashland Place and Dekalb Avenue, apparently driving the wrong direction about a block away from the hospital in Fort Greene. He had been shot twice — once in the left arm and once in the torso.
Police say that as McKinney sat at a red light, a man walked up and started shooting. As McKinney drove, he hit one fence and backed into another before coming to a stop.
He was taken to the hospital, where he died a short time later.
His family said McKinney, who went by the name “Carl,” was a hip hop producer and a father of three.
No arrests have been made. It is still unclear whether McKinney was specifically targeted, or was the victim of a random robbery or carjacking.
