RAP­PER’S FRIEND SU­ING HO­TEL OVER SE­CU­RITY

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST - — Kirk Mitchell, The Den­ver Post

A friend of pop­u­lar rap­per Fa­mous Dex is su­ing Hy­att Place Den­ver Air­port claim­ing that poor se­cu­rity al­lowed some­one from an un­ruly crowd of fans to shoot him in the knee out­side the per­former’s room, a law­suit says.

Rap­per Dex­ter Gordon’s 26-year-old friend, N’Sangue Au­gus­tine, sued Hy­att Place, 7700 E. Ara­pa­hoe Road, on Tues­day in U.S. District Court in Den­ver. Au­gus­tine is seek­ing un­spec­i­fied dam­ages and at­tor­neys fees against Hy­att.

A phone mes­sage left at Hy­att me­dia head­quar­ters in Chicago was not re­turned Wed­nes­day.

Au­gus­tine was trav­el­ing with Gordon, a Chicago rap­per, on Aug. 16, 2016, when they went to the ho­tel after a per­for­mance.

A crowd of fans en­tered the ho­tel and asked staff mem­bers which room Fa­mous Dex was in and then gath­ered out­side the rap­per’s room, the law­suit says. Ho­tel staff mem­bers made no ef­fort to pro­tect the two men or call po­lice, the law­suit says.

When Au­gus­tine asked the crowd to leave so he and Gordon could get some rest, one of the fans pulled out a gun and shot him in the knee, the law­suit says.
