Snoop Dogg Fatal Shooting Reenacted Parkgoers Panic

The tranquility at a San Fernando Valley park was shattered by what sounded like gunfire, sending picnickers and others scrambling for cover … but it was all just a reenactment of an infamous murder case that put Snoop Dogg in the defendant’s chair.

It happened last week at Tarzana Park. A scene was being shot for the docuseries “Rich and Acquitted,” putting the spotlight on the 1993 shooting death of gang member Philip Woldemariam. Snoop, who was in a rival gang, was tried for murder and acquitted.

We’re told cops were aware blanks would be fired in the park to reenact the murder, but apparently the memo didn’t get out to people who were strolling around.  

It’s really bizarre … this is happening more and more where there’s a shooting reenactment for a TV show or movie but bystanders are left in the dark. It happened recently on the Vegas

Snoop Dogg Shooting Reenactment Leaves Bystanders Running for Cover

People at Tarzana Park in San Fernando Valley, Calif. got quite a scare when gun shots started to ring out in the park only to later learn that the gunfire was part of the filming of a reenactment of the fatal shooting that involved Snoop Dogg from back in 1993.

According to TMZ, the incident occurred last week. It was all part of the upcoming docuseries Rich and Acquitted which shows the true stories of wealthy people who have gotten acquitted of serious crimes. The only problem is, it appears not everyone in the area was notified. When the guns started bussing, cats started getting low (no Flo Rida).

Gardner man’s voice is heard around the world

Like many youngsters growing up, Andy Barnett was glued to the television when the old Looney Tune cartoons came on. But he did more than just watch and laugh.

“I was about three or four then and when Mel Blanc did Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck I started imitating him,” Barnett said. “It became a ritual with me.”

His skill with imitations eventually led to a career as a voiceover actor with national and international clients.

“When I started school at Overland Christian in Overland Park I was kind of a goofball, you know, the class clown,” Barnett said. “I was always in trouble doing imitations. Now I get paid for doing it. That makes it more fun.”

This year his career took a new twist.

He was retained by REELZ Cable Network to narrate the series, “Rich and Acquitted,” which focused on high-profile celebrities whose prestige and wealth enabled them to
