Asian Doll, also known as Asian Da Brat, is most known for her prolific mixtape output and collaborations with artists such as Gucci Mane, PnB Rock, and King Von, with whom she had a relationship prior to his death in November 2020. On Saturday, October 15, Asian Doll performed in Salisbury, North Carolina. Unfortunately, it was overshadowed by a shooting that resulted in two persons being shot and others being injured.
According to WSOC-TV, the Dallas-bred rapper was performing at Livingstone College’s homecoming concert when a shooting happened in the audience. While Asian Doll was on stage, a fight broke out in the audience between two persons who are not affiliated with the school, according to college officials. Then at least one of them fired a shot.
Around 11 p.m., authorities were called to the campus and discovered two students had been shot, as well as several others who were injured while fleeing the gunfire. A male victim was flown to a hospital in Charlotte, which is about 35 miles southwest of Salisbury where he is in stable condition. A female victim who was grazed by a gunshot was treated and released from a local hospital.
The investigation is still in its early stages, according to police, and no arrests have been made. Asian Doll has yet to comment on the shooting. “I’m saddened that after a week of homecoming activities without incident, our students, alumni, their families, and friends had to witness this senseless act of gun violence,” Livingstone College President Dr. Anthony J. Davis said.
Throughout her career, the 25-year-old has courted controversy. From feuding with many rappers, including City Girls’ JT and Katie Got Bandz, to supporting Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
