According to the NY Daily News, producer AraabMuzik, real name Abraham Orellana, was shot inside of a PRoPark America parking garage on W. 125th street at approximately 7 pm Thursday. The 26-year-old was with a friend, James Malloy, who was also shot.
Orellana underwent surgery at Harlem Hospital after being shot in the jaw and right hand. He was also grazed in the head. Malloy was shot in the leg and is in stable condition at St. Luke’s Hospital.
two men approached AraabMuzik when he was behind the wheel of his friend’s BMW, telling him that he’d dropped something. When he rolled down the window shots here fired. Three .380 caliber shell casings were recovered at the scene.
In 2013 AraabMuzik was shot in a robbery attempt in Rhode Island, where he is from. A statement from his rep at the time said that he was “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
AraabMuzik has made a name producing tracks for The Diplomats, Dj Kay Slay, Capone-N-Noreaga, Jim Jones, Cam’ron and Slaughterhouse.
