SAN ANTONIO, Texas – San Antonio police said a 25-year-old local rapper was gunned down by unknown assailants while driving on Loop 410 following a performance at a popular Northwest Side club.

Police say Christopher Polk, also known as Chris P – OG Ape Life, and another man left the Ice Lounge, in the 5500 block of Loop 410, shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday.

As the two got onto Loop 410 and headed east near Callaghan Road, a silver SUV pulled up beside them and a passenger in that SUV opened fire on the driver’s side of the victim’s car, according to police.

Police said a second vehicle then got in front of the victim’s vehicle and began shooting as well. Polk, who was driving the vehicle, was hit multiple times and the passenger was struck in the hand.

The passenger reportedly managed to gain control of the steering wheel during the attack and bring the car to a stop on the right shoulder of Loop 410.

Polk was pronounced dead at the scene and the wounded passenger was taken to University Hospital.

Ofc. Doug Greene, SAPD spokesman, said the second victim was in serious condition as of Saturday afternoon.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Polk’s identity Saturday morning. Officials say the shooting reportedly occurred in the 4400 block of Loop 410. Police say the suspects fled and are still at large.

This is the second rapper in two days to be targeted by violence, or threats, in the San Antonio area.

Brooklyn-based rapper 6ix9ine was threatened by a notorious Texas prison gang over a Thursday performance at Bar 23. Three men were later arrested in connection to those threats.

Police ask anyone with information on the attack to contact Crime Stoppers at 210-224-7867, or homicide detectives at 210-207-7635.
