Cousins! Sexxy Red has taken to social media to extend her condolences following a tragic incident near her music video shoot in Florida last night that resulted in the death of a man.
The incident occurred on Thursday evening around 8 PM within the 3100 block of West Oakland Park Boulevard alongside Oakland Park Flea Market. According to NBC Miami News, the shooting took place near the site of Sexxy Red’s music video for a new song.
As reports continue to circulate, it has been stated that officials are still investigating to determine whether or not the shooting is at all related to the video.
Sexxy Red has since spoken out following the series of unfortunate events as she declares that the shooting took place across the street from the video’s site.
“I send my condolences to the family of the man who lost his life and prayers up for the person who was wounded,” the statement said. “But I gotta address the rumors that it happened at my video shoot because s*** is not true at all.”
“To be clear it happened at a gas station across the street from my video set. Florida Highway Patrol and Broward County Sheriff confirmed that the shooting wasn’t on my set.”
Sources state that there is video currently circulating throughout social media that show’s a victim on the ground following the shooting.
An employee of McDonald’s tells NBC News, “We were giving out food at the window and me and this lady heard [imitates gunfire] so we all duck down in the store.”
t”When we opened the door we see a bunch of cops and stuff heading this way, we look and we see a bunch of people leaving the flea market coming onto the parking lot and next thing you know they had tape all around here,” says the employee.
According to TMZ, an assailant opened fire, killing one person and wounding another.
