Hip-hop producer AraabMuzik was reportedly shot twice inside the ProPark America parking garage on Thursday night (Feb. 25) in Harlem, NY. According to NY Daily News, Araab (real name: Abraham Orellana) suffered wounds in his jaw and right arm, and was also grazed in the head by a bullet. 

He is currently recovering in Harlem Hospital after having to undergo surgery for the injuries. James Malloy, a friend of the 26-year-old producer who is on parole for conspiracy, was also reportedly shot and is currently in stable condition at St. Luke's Hospital.

Sources allege that Malloy and AraabMuzik left a friend’s home and went to the parking garage, where the producer drove his friend’s BMW. Upon arriving at the exit, two men reportedly approached the driver's side and tricked him into rolling down the car window.

AraabMuzik was wounded three years ago in Providence, RI (his hometown) during an apparent armed robbery. We will update as more details emerge from the report.
