A huge party at a Los Angeles mansion was allegedly being thrown for an NFL player who was drafted back in April ended in gunfire. There were reportedly a lot of big ballers in attendance at the party prior to the shooting.
There were reportedly three people shot at the party. One woman was reportedly killed and the other two are still in the hospital.
From CBS Los Angeles:
One woman was killed and two other people were wounded after shots were fired at a large party at a mansion in the upscale hillside neighborhood of Beverly Crest in the early morning hours Tuesday.
Kennie D. Leggett, who identified himself to CBSLA as the head of security for the party, alleged it was being thrown to celebrate a player recently getting drafted to an NFL team, but did not clarify the name of the player or which team he was drafted to.
“We have money,” Leggett said. “We are people. This, COVID I mean, is just pushing us out everywhere, and we have nothing, so the only thing we do have is Airbnbs to rent, swimming pools for our kids, to do big things and things of that nature.”
On Monday night, about six hours prior to the shooting, police had responded to numerous complaints from neighbors worried about the size of the crowd. Pack buses were seen dropping dozens of people off at the home. When officers first arrived at about 7 p.m. Monday, they found about 200 people.
According to an eyewitness, who posted a video of the gunfire on Instagram, the big ballers were gambling and lost a bunch of money, "then a bunch of gangsters came in and robbed everybody and started shooting everybody."

Holy shit! This is an insane party to be throwing during a pandemic, especially if it was for an NFL player who was just drafted. It's fucking crazy.
The gunfire just adds to the insanity. We really need to find out who was at this party.
