Cops Have Person Of Interest In Shooting Threat At ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Screening In NYC

A frighting scare happened at the screening of “Surviving R.Kelly” documentary in NYC earlier this week. Someone called in a gun threat at the venue where some of R.Kelly’s accusers/survivors were there to share their experience with the singer.

It was cut short after police forced everyone to evacuate. Of course, fingers were being pointed at Kelly, but cops have pinned where the phone call exactly came from and it’s ironically from his hometown!

According to TMZ, law enforcement sources say NYPD’s person of interest is a man with Chicago’s 773 area code. Cops aren’t ready to release the man’s name yet and at this time, it’s unclear if he has any direct connection to Kelly.

While cops aren’t sure if the suspect is connected to the troubled star, R. Kelly’s ex-wife, Andrea Kelly sure believes there’s some connection!

As we previously reported, Drea who was at NeueHouse with several other accusers who were there to hold a Q&A session after the screening, told Variety that she believes the singer was connected to the threats. She said,

“I can’t speak to what he would or would not do because I don’t know what his mindset is right now,” she told Variety. “But I would say that I don’t believe in happenstance, I don’t believe that anything is a coincidence. I do believe that in some shape, form or fashion it is connected to him. Now, whether he orchestrated it or not, that I cannot say. But I just do not believe in coincidences. Of all the theaters, of all the nights, of all the premiers, it happened with us.”
