WATCH: A Florida Rapper Live Streamed His Own Shootout With Police



WINDERMEERE, FL—A domestic dispute on Wednesday night nearly turned deadly when a 23-year old man got into a gunfight with Orange County deputies.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office were responding to a call at an apartment complex about a man dragging and beating a woman, reported the Orlando Weekly.

When deputies arrived, they encountered Laforest Duron Gray Jr.—a Florida rapper who goes by the moniker Big LA—and his wife, who refused to speak with them.

That’s when things turned ugly.

According to Orlando Weekly, “Gray ignored multiple commands from deputies to show them his hands, keeping his right hand concealed as he stood behind the open passenger door of a yellow Camaro.”

The 23-year-old was screaming at deputies while his wife tried to calm him down and stood between him and law enforcement.

Gray went live on Instagram for about four minutes, cursing at deputies as his followers pleaded with him to relax.

“Y’all fixing to see this shit live,” Gray allegedly said while smiling at the camera, according to the affidavit. “Straight up you fixin’ to see this shit live. I’ll take one for the team, bro – I swear to God, I swear to God.”

At that point, deputies allege, Gray fired a .38 caliber which prompted the three deputies to return fire.

As the video shows, Gray ducked behind the Camaro before a K9 subdued him.

Gray was treated at the Orlando Regional Medical Center for a dog bite sustained during his arrest and was, reportedly, later booked into the Orlando County Jail on charges of “attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer with a firearm, domestic violence battery, resisting an officer with violence and a burglary of conveyance.”
