Snoop Dogg Escapes From Shooting

Rapper SNOOP DOGG escaped unhurt after he was shot at whilst driving in Los Angeles last night (10APR03), although one of his bodyguards was hit in the back.

Police state that the GIN AND JUICE star was travelling in a convey of cars when another vehicle pulled up alongside at 9pm in the Mid-City area, and shots were fired after one of three men asked to speak to Snoop.

One of his seven bodyguards, an off-duty police officer from the city's Inglewood school district, was wounded in the back, although it is currently unclear whether the injured man was travelling in the same car as the 31-year-old musician, real name CALVIN BROADUS.

The man was released from hospital earlier today (11APR03).

A police spokesperson BRIAN OWEN stated that, although Snoop and his entourage were questioned following the incident, he did not expect any charges to follow, and that no further arrests have been made at the moment.
