Bet - Bet Awards Marred By Party Death

The 2014 Bet Awards were marred by a fatal shooting at an unofficial pre-party event in Los Angeles on Sunday (29Jun14), just hours after a stabbing at another bash in the run up to the glitzy awards show.

On Saturday (28Jun14), a pre-party event hosted by rapper Meek Mill in L.A. ended in a fight which left one club-goer hospitalised with stab wounds.

In the early hours of Sunday, at a separate unofficial event in the city, one reveller was killed and four others were wounded when shots were fired at a restaurant. The victims were admitted to hospital, where one passed away.

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating both incidents.

Officials at the Bet network insisted they were not involved in organising the events, saying, "The two isolated incidents over the weekend occurred at locations with events that were unauthorised and unaffiliated with the Bet Awards, Bet Experience at L.A. Live or their partners... Security remains the number one priority for all official Bet events and the network and all organisers will continue to maintain a safe environment for all planned activities."

The Bet Awards, which celebrate African Americans in entertainment, took place in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, with Beyonce and Pharrell Williams scooping top awards.
