Shooting Incident Takes Place at NYC Hooters

Shooting Incident Takes Place at NYC Hooters

NYPD officials are investigating after a shooting incident rattled customers at a local Hooters overnight.

Shots were fired following a verbal altercation that included members of former NBA star Lamar Odom’s entourage. The incident happened in the early morning hours of Thursday, July 19 at the Hooters restaurant in Queens. As 38-year-old Odom was dining at one of the outdoor tables, members of another group fired shots before fleeing the scene.

Police say Odom was not the intended target or involved in the incident, although he was there at the scene. As the investigation continues, Odom took to his Instagram on Tuesday afternoon to share this message: “I want to let my fans know that I am OK. Thanks for your messages I will try to respond to as many fans I can. Just to share the ‘truth’ here with you all. I was near the scene when it just happened and not involved in any way! Thanks, Lamar Odom,” he wrote.
