Hit producer AraabMuzik, who’s real name Abraham Orellana, was shot on Thursday night (Feb. 25) in a Harlem parking garage. As reported in the New York Daily News he underwent surgery due to gunshot wounds to his jaw as well as his right arm at Harlem Hospital, where he is currently recovering. A bullet also grazed his head, according to the report.
James Malloy, who is a friend of the producer, was also shot in the right leg during the same incident. He was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
The shooting happened around 7pm at the ProAmerica parking garage on W. 125th St. Orellana and Malloy were on their way to exiting the garage when two men approached the driver’s seat window. One of the suspects reportedly convinced Orellana, who was driving, that he had dropped something, prompting the producer to roll down the window. The shots were fired immediately after the window went down, and the suspects fled on foot.
