NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police say a man who goes by the name “Whitey GZ” on social media is being sought in connection to a shooting in the Bronx.

According to the NYPD, the suspect, identified only as “Whitey GZ,” pulled out a handgun and shot the victim in the leg at around 10:45 p.m. in an apartment on Irwin Avenue Wednesday night.

Police say the rapper intended to rob the victim of his cellphone and backpack. When the victim resisted, police say the suspect shot the victim in the right thigh.

According to police, the victim and suspect were at the apartment to shoot a music video. The victim was supposed to star in the video and “Whitey GZ” was supposed to film it.

The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition. The suspect fled on foot.

“Whitey GZ’s” Twitter handle has not been updated since the incident occurred. The Bronx rapper has three freestyle rap videos on what appears to be his YouTube page — the last one was uploaded on Sept. 20.

Police say the suspect has dreadlocks and several tattoos, including one that says “Almost Impossible” on his left arm and another that reads “Dream For Success” on his right arm.

The NYPD is asking anyone with information about the suspect to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS or by logging on to their website at

    These stupid Negros always have to resort to violence, when they don’t like something. Must be their African genes that makes them love being violent.

  19. Darth says:

    Well this simply won’t do. I guess a loot/protest is in order. OK, who will meet me at the local Walmart? I’m putting a shopping list together: Some stolen TV’s and Video games should be just enough to show them how fed up, I am, with rapper on rapper violence.
