Dougie B was recently arrested on March 31 outside Bronx Criminal Court following an argument in the parking lot. He was cuffed on undisclosed charges after a commotion in the E. 161st St. parking lot.
The shooting occurred when a group of men were arguing with each other in the parking lot. One group began chasing the other and a man then pulled a gun, firing a shot. However, no injuries were reported in the shooting and no charges were filed.
The news was confirmed by the cops, who believed that there was some type of car collision and shots were fired at one point, although no one was injured. The rapper was due in court on Thursday afternoon in an unrelated shooting case.
A woman told The Post that she witnessed an argument between a group of guys and suddenly heard a gunshot. She added,
“So crazy because right in front of the Bronx Supreme Court? What did they think was going to happen? They weren’t getting away.”
