What was supposed to be a fun night at the season five premiere party for ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ at Salsa Con Fuego, a club in the Bronx, turned into a night straight out of a horror movie for Bow Wow’s fiance, Erica Mena!
It was the last thing anyone expected. Erica Mena and her cast mates headed to toast the upcoming season of their hit show Love & Hip Hop‘s upcoming premiere and the unthinkable happened. An insider tells HollywoodLife.com that “everyone was having a great time at the party when all of a sudden five gunshots rang out.” How scary!
‘Love & Hip Hop’ Shooting At NYC Premiere Party & Erica Mena ‘Hurt,’ Says Insider
The insider went on to tell us: “Everyone ducked down and hit the floor. Just when people started getting back up and thought it was clear, three more shots went out and it was like a mass exit, everyone was just trying to run and get out of the club.”
The scariest part is that Erica, who is engaged to Bow Wow, got “hurt in the shuffle,” says our source.
“She had to go to urgent care because she got stepped on as people were trying to get out of the club. She has a big bruise and her lower back is all swollen.”
Our insider says that Bow Wow is so upset over this: “Bow told Erica he doesn’t want to see her in a dangerous situation. He said: ‘My wife’s not going to be in just anybody’s club. We’re screening your bookings from now on.'”
Her manager and rumored beau, Albee, was also badly injured.
“Albee was cut by a glass in the shuffle and had to get six stitches on the side of his left eye,” our source added. “It was a ton of blood and he left the scene in an ambulance. At first, he didn’t know if he was shot or what just because there was so much blood.”
We’ve reached out to the police and VH1 for comment.
“No one knows who did it,” our source says. “The venue was crowded so they couldn’t see. It sounded like the shots went off right next to you.”
HollywoodLifers, this is so scary and we will keep you posted as the story develops.
