The atmosphere turned tense as the bullet struck the victim in the chest, prompting immediate action from those present at the venue who rushed him to the hospital for urgent treatment.

The incident, which unfolded due to a dispute over song selection, escalated when the song of the alleged shooter played instead of the injured youth Vicky’s favorite tune.
