Last night (Thursday – 8/27), local hip-hop music-maker and rapper extraordinaire Craig Dyar, Jr. – known by “Dot Ducati” was shot point-blank in front of the popular nightclub near the U of M called the Red Sea. Dyar is stabilized and his family is at his bedside.
Sources tell OBN that after the “rap battle,” someone came up to Dyar and sucker punched him from behind, then the unidentified black man pulled out a small caliber weapon and shot Dyar multiple times. Dyar’s brother-in-law, who does not want to be named said, “The look on this dudes face (the man who shot), was like a wild monster. He wanted to kill my guy.” According to sources, there were multiple witnesses to this shooting.
Witnesses say Minneapolis police were across the street and let the suspect get away on foot after repeated calls to catch the perpetrator.
The Red Sea restaurant is a popular nightspot and performance venue near the University of Minnesota on the fringe of downtown Minneapolis. There have been no returned calls from the venue in regards to this story.
If you have any information about the shooter, you are encouraged to call the Minneapolis Police Department.
