Car, Not Gunshot, Killed Man During Rap Video Filming In Olney

By Mike Dougherty

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police say man who died during the filming of a rap video in Olney Thursday was not shot, as was initially reported.

Authorities thought the man was shot in the head then run over by a car. The medical examiner did not find any bullet wound during the autopsy.

The victim apparently tripped and fell before being run over as more than 100 people watched.

Police say there were shots fired as the crowd scattered and officers arrested three men with guns who may face weapons charges, but not murder charges.

The driver of the car has cooperated with police and it is unclear if charges will be filed.

      Your link is for morons that can’t possibly think for themselves. Truthers are like the witches of old, and should be burned at the stake, because they are dumbing down the gene pool…………..enjoy being led by the nose, like cattle, hope you have not procreated yet.

      1. Dutra says:

        Please elaborate. If that inferior gene pool is anything like your sentence structure and syntax, I will concede the point.

    They still make video’s?

    This is a learning moment for all. Leave video production up to professionals.
    In the meantime, Obama can use this tragedy (once again) to his advantage:
    Ban guns (even though these used were illegally obtained)
    Ban cars (use mass transit)
    Ban violence (unless he directs it)
    Ban Nascar: Big waste of fuel and time when people could be out in the fields picking weeds
    Ban free speech – replace with corrected English since he feels it’s flawed
    Ban the Constitution: People shouldn’t be free to participate in activities deemed harmful
    Ban Congress: They aren’t necessary since he can simply sign executive orders
    Change you can believe in!!

    1. Josh O'Donnell says:

      When did Obama ever try to ban guns?

    Consider this. Sales of rap videos correlate with the “badness” of the rapper. The badder the rapper, the higher the sales. So the gunfire was probably part of the SFX to increase sales. Just a theory, but it does hold water, yes?

  9. Jabber says:

    I think its terrible that this man was run over and all he wanted was skittles and ice tea.

  10. JoeS says:

    It should be news worthy when something like this DOESNT happen at a gathering like this.

  11. JustAGuy says:

    Barack Obama said this victim looks like the younger brother he never had.

    No? ….oh well.

      That’s a racist website.

  13. dewanda says:

    Racism will be over when people stop obsessing about race. I don’t see the media talking at all about this: “Kansas City – A 13-year-old boy was walking home from school on Tuesday, when two African American males started following him. He was only two blocks away from his home when they started following him, but just as he arrived on his doorstep, they attacked him and doused him with gasoline.

    His mother, Melissa Coon, told reporters “They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open, (One of them) poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.'” (NYDAILYNEWS)”

    1. Kayhla says:

      Hmmm. I did see it. Maybe because I read the news? So how did you see it if the media didn’t report on it? Um… fail. Because, you know the NY Daily News is a news outlet… and they reported it. The people involved are, ya know, being prosecuted in a court of law. So… ya… what your point is I am not sure. But it is stupid as it stands now. Ye Gods, our problem isn’t just race relations, it’s ignorance and illogical statements from all sides. One Google search gave me over seven million hits, and all on the first page were discussing this. I don’t have time to look them all over but… stop with the stupidity please.

      heyyyy relaxxxxxx!!!there both comedians harm!!!!!

      “Christopher Jones, 14, was jumped and beaten to death while riding his bike, on the very street he lived on, not far from his own front door.” 6 black teenagers were arrested. 2 are serving time will get less than 5 years, the other 4 got off. Real justice there for ya. It’s a tragedy when any child dies, no matter what race they are.

      1. Dave says:

        Not really Kaitara, nobody would miss the six in your story, in fact if I found out about their early demise I’d throw a party.

        Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it!
