Updated below: Zambia, nickname "RoseMo," and a member of rapper Waka Flocka Flame's crew claim in a video interview to have knocked out The Game at a Culver City mall in September. The motive? Game had allegedly been "getting out of line on Twitter and shit." Inglewood homicide detectives say they're looking into the activity.
A young man named Jomo Adoula Zambia was murdered in broad daylight yesterday while driving his red BMW down Florence Avenue in Inglewood.
Inglewood police say he blew through the red light at Eucalyptus Avenue around 2:30 p.m., after being shot in the arm and torso -- broadsiding an on-duty police officer in an unmarked car.
That officer was pulled from the wreckage by L.A. County firefighters. He's currently in critical condition at a nearby hospital.
Zambia was rushed to the hospital as well, but died soon after. "Investigators are attempting to determine where and when the victim was shot," says Lieutenant Marie DiBernardo at the station. Two promising leads, so far, on that front:
