The two men were shot in the backyard of a home in North Hollywood, one of them a rapper who goes by the name of Wacko the Kid. Authorities believe that the pair were heading back home after spending time in a music studio in a recording session. Once they pulled into the driveway of the home, they were attacked by the violent group in ski masks. 

Wacko the Kid and his friend were shot multiple times after being followed home by two to three suspects in a follow-home robbery. Both are in critical condition and police are searching the neighborhood for surveillance cameras.
