R. Kelly Associate is Person of Interest in Shooting Threat at ‘Surviving’ Screening
Police are reporting that a member of R. Kelly‘s entourage has links to the shooting threat that was made during the screening of “Surviving R. Kelly.”
TMZ reports that the NYPD has flagged Donnel Russell as a person of interest for the threats that were made last month in NYC. Russell has been an alleged business associate of Kelly for a while. Police reportedly want to speak to him in connecting with threatening phone calls that were made to the theatre where the screening was being held.
As we previously reported NeueHouse in New York was evacuated just 20 minutes into the screening after someone phoned in to warn the audience that shorts would be fired if the screening continued.
Police say they connected the phone number to a Chicago 773 area code, which is believed to belong to Russell, however, they have had no luck in getting in contact with him.
Kelly’s ex-wife has previously said that her ex had a connection to the threats.
