Rapper Keak Da Sneak wounded in gas station shooting

Richmond police say someone shot rapper Keak Da Sneak, whose given name is Charles Williams. The artist is in stable condition.

Police do not have a suspect or getaway vehicle description, but they are looking at surveillance video

Keak Da Sneak is well known for his contribution to E-40's "Tell Me When to Go."

A police spokesperson said someone shot Williams multiple times in his upper torso. Police are still investigating the motive and say there were few witnesses.

"What we know is he was most likely targeted and it wasn't a random shooting and it kind of underscores the fact that the person who did this was intending to probably take his life because you don't just shoot multiple times at a person not intending for the person to die," said Lt. Felix Tan with the Richmond Police Department.

Richmond police say Keak Da Sneak had a show in Oakland on Sunday night. As part of their investigation, police say they are looking into what if any ties he had in Richmond.
