Snoop Dogg has reacted to Drakeo’s death on Twitter with a sorrowful message. Dogg says he was informed about the stabbing while he was in his dressing room, and immediately left the grounds. In the same breath, he sent condolences to Drakeo’s family.
The Los Angeles Times spoke with the public information officer for the Los Angeles Fire Department, Margaret Stewart, who said that that around 8:40 p.m. Pacific, paramedics responded to a call about a stabbing and that one person was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The New York Times reports that the stabbing is currently under investigation by the LAPD but that it was “unclear” whether any arrests had been made.
The person was not identified in The Los Angeles Times’ report, but “a person with direct knowledge of the incident” told The Los Angeles Times that “hip-hop artist Drakeo the Ruler was attacked by a group of people at the music festival and seriously injured,” as the article states.
