In an unfortunate string of events, hip-hop producer AraabMuzik was shot twice in Harlem yesterday evening. His friend was also wounded.
Abraham Orellana, known as AraabMuzik, is currently recovering after undergoing surgery at Harlem Hospital after being shot in the jaw, right arm and head last night around 7 p.m. James Malloy, a friend of Orellana’s, was shot in the right leg and is in stable condition at St. Luke’s Hospital.
The pair were shot inside the ProPark America parking garage on W. 125th St, after leaving a friend’s home. As Orellana and Malloy were exiting the garage, two men approached the driver’s side of their vehicle and tricked Orellana into thinking he had dropped something.
Shortly after rolling down the window, shots were fired. Sources say police recovered three .380 shell casings. The suspects are currently unidentified.
This is not the first time that AraabMuzik was involved in a shooting. In May 2013, he was shot in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island during an apparent attempted robbery. Our thoughts are with AraabMuzik and James Malloy, wishing them both a speedy recovery.
