Doe B on October 3, 2013 in New York City.

Rising rapper Doe B and a college student were killed early Saturday, after gunfire erupted at an Alabama bar and grill.

Troy University student Kimberle Johnson, 21, and 22-year-old Glenn Thomas, an up-and-coming rapper known as Doe B, died in a deadly shooting that left six wounded near Alabama State University, the Montgomery Advertiser reports. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene when gunfire broke out at about 1 a.m. Saturday, while Thomas was taken to the Baptist Medical Center South, where he was pronounced dead.

No arrests in connection to the shooting were made as of mid-day Sunday and the injured patrons were in stable condition, according to Lt. Regina Duckett. Thomas had two children and third child on the way.

The incident is the second shooting in about a year at the Centennial Bar and Grill, prompting Mayor Todd Strange to immediately close the business as a threat to public safety.

Put a couple more notches in the NRA's belt. When people die, their answer is "buy more guns to protect yourself". It's a win/win for them.

This shooting is just one in a million in America everyday , It has nothing to do with him being a rap artist. From what I know, He was not the intended target but an innocent bystander himself. Just because he did rap music does not make him any different than any of the young men who are being cut down on the streets to senseless violence. 

At Least 9,900 People Have Died From Guns In The U.S. Since The Newtown Shooting. Rather than blaming his talents for the cause of his demise, why not address Congress in reference to banning assault rifles. That's where the real problem lies. I pray heavy for Doe B's children and family. May He rest in peace and without earthy judgements.

Rap music, big mouth black rappers, wannabe thugs, jealous punks, booze, drugs and you get a formula for death. You hang out with them and you get astray bullet no matter how innocent you maybe.

@hanksmom_96 please refrain from displaying your ignorance on the matter of the second amendment or the NRA.  When you educate yourself and come back from the Utopia that is your world, we will entertain serious discussion with you.

@ShawnSycoeJackson Banning assault rifles?  really, that's the answer?  You appear to be another person who is uneducated in the realm of having and not having firearms.  You, apparently, hear a buzzword on TV and just believe it as truth.  How about you go out and get educated on a the subject before you comment?

@BrooklynZ00 Being black moron has everything to do with it. How many white rappers you know 2 maybe 3. And my post name is meant to be ironic, by the way I am black.

@Openminded1 I share your sentiment man...I just wish people would look at the context of your message and meaning and take all the racist/hate undertones out of it.  If a certain element of PEOPLE in a given demographic dress a certain way, behave a certain way and develop a "culture" of violence and thug behavior....and then you go out and dress like them and start behave like them...then you have to be prepared to be treated like them and possibly get pulled into some scene of violence.  That's true of ANY "culture".....blacks, hispanics, italians, skinheads, etc, etc.  People who don't grow up in that "culture" have no reason to dress that way or act that way unless you CHOOSE to...and when you CHOOSE to...then expect the consequences.  That's just reality.  No hate, no disrespect...just reality.  Sad but true...
