Police Investigate Murder During French Montana Show
Police in Northern New Jersey are investigating the stabbing death of a man who was killed during a show featuring rapper French Montana.
Over 450 were gathered for a pre-Christmas bashing Friday (December 23) at The Mirage Banquet Hall in Edison, that was promoted by Hot 97's DJ Wallah and featured French Montana as a surprise performer.
According to reports, French arrived with an entourage of about 40 people, who became unruly when they could not access the VIP section of the hall.
“Everyone was enjoying themselves,” Mirage’s co-owner Shaun Mehtani told The Star-Ledger. “The trouble began when his entourage arrived.”
According to my Mehtani, French Montana’s entourage began arguing with people in the VIP and taking their drinks.
A scuffle ensued, and The Mirage’s 10-man security force was quickly outnumbered.
Security ended the party early, and the 400- 500 strong crowd spilled into the venue’s parking lot.
In the parking lot, several other fights broke out, resulting in the stabbing death of 21-year-old Jayson Perry.
Five other people were also stabbed during the melee, while one man suffered from a superficial gunshot wound.
Prosecutors in Edison and Middlesex New Jersey have opened an investigation into the stabbings and the death of Perry.
