Screwed Up Click rapper Mr. 3-2 was one of two men who were killed in a shooting at a gas station in southwest Houston.
Esteemed Houston rap veteran Mr. 3-2, an original member of the legendary Screwed Up Click, was shot and killed at a gas station in southwest Houston. The 44-year-old rapper, whose real name is Christopher Barriere, was one of two victims in the shooting, which occurred some time late Thursday night or early Friday morning (Nov. 11).
Before the shooting began, Barriere, the other victim, the shooter, and one other man were gathered outside of the gas station. Homicide police say all four men knew each other, reports Houston's KTRK-TV. Two of the men went inside, and then the shooter, still outside, pulled out a pistol and killed the first victim with a shot to the back of the head. The suspect then drove away from the scene, but he soon returned, this time with a shotgun, and killed the second victim by shooting him in the face. It has not yet been reported whether Barriere was the first or second man to be killed.
When the killer came back to the gas station, he reportedly also fired at bystanders with whom he had no affiliation. Police have confirmed that one witness was shot in the leg, and no other injuries have yet been reported. In addition to the several witnesses, there is apparently extensive surveillance footage of the incident. After returning to open fire for a second time, the shooter was able to flee the scene, reportedly driving either a white or grey four-door car.
Mr. 3-2 was signed to Rap-A-Lot Records, and he was part of groups such as The Convicts, Southside Playaz, and Blac Monks. He has collaborated with the likes of Snoop Dogg, UGK, Scarface, and 8Ball & MJG. Many artists have shared their condolences and paid tribute to Mr. 3-2, aka The Governor, on social media.
