Man Faces Murder Charges for Shooting Outside of French Montana’s Tour Bus
The man who was responsible for the shooting outside of French Montana’s tour bus last week that killed one person and injured another has been arrested, Philly.com reports.
Police authorities say 20-year-old Frank Briggs, of Germantown, Philadelphia, “pulled up in a car and opened fire on a crowd gathered outside rap artist French Montana’s tour bus late Thursday night, after the bus stopped near a Holiday Inn Express on Columbus Boulevard.”
Jowann King, 26, was fatally wounded in the drive-by shooting while a second man, age 28, was injured but was in stable condition.
Briggs was charged with murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, weapons offenses and related charges.
While news reports claimed that the shooting was instigated by French Montana and his crew, he has denied any involvement in the incident. He said in a statement on Twitter that his bus was in the vicinity. He also elaborated with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez that his bus didn’t have any bullet holes.
“I had a peaceful concert and was not involved … My deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to the families of the victims, as well as all of those who were affected.”
