The police were frustrated at how quiet the partygoers were in regard to who had the gun and who shot the bullets that ended the rapper’s life. In their first press conference, they noted that there were at least 30 people at the venue that night, and not one has come forward with any information.

In addition to that frustration, the police had to plead with those same people to stop sharing what they know online and report it to the police instead. They even offered up an anonymous tip line for those who are concerned about being snitches.
