Quando Rondo was shot dead in his home state, Georgia.
A representative of the Blackshear Police Department confirmed to XXL Monday, May 3 that the rapper, born Tyquian Bowman, and his team were involved in a shootout at a convenience store in Blackshear, Georgia. The city is about two hours northeast of the rapper’s hometown of Savannah, Georgia. However, Blackshear, Ga. Is about 13 minutes from Waycross, Georgia, where the Quando Rondo recently had a show, which had very low crowd attendance.
TMZ reported this afternoon that the incident took place on Sunday (April 2) at around 3:20 a.m. Quando and his team were in a parking lot near the highway and justice officials believe the gunman opened fire from across the road or highway.
However, there is no indication that Quando Rondo was hit by the gunfire because he left the scene before the police arrived. The outlet notes that he was allegedly in the parking lot right before the shooting happened.
the QPac rhymer was reportedly towed by a large number of people and one of the men with Quando at the time was reportedly shot in the hand. He was treated at a nearby hospital.
TMZ also claims officials said it didn’t appear that Quando and his team were at the convenience store for very long before the shooting. The cops believe they were making a brief stop at the store before the shots rang out.
XXL contacted the Blackshear Police Department for comment. A representative for Quando Rondo confirmed that he was fine.
