Rapper French Montana has expressed his sympathies to the victims of a deadly shooting which took place after his concert in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Thursday.
Montana was onboard his tour bus, which was parked up outside a Holiday Inn hotel in the city, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of fans nearby. Jowann King, who had attended Montana's show at The Theater of the Living Arts earlier that night, died after the 26-year-old was shot in the stomach, while another unnamed male was also injured.
