Indiana Rapper Shoots Self In Face For Attention

Last updated on Wednesday, August 3, 2016

(NEW HAVEN) - A northeastern Indiana rapper took a disturbing and dangerous chance with his own life recently in Indianapolis. He shot himself in the face intentionally. He said he did it all to get attention.

It worked, because millions of people around the world have watched the video online.

One of Knight's lyrics says "a bullet to the face will take me to another place." Knight couldn't get any photographer to capture what he wanted to do for a music video- shoot himself in the face. So, he did it himself with an iPhone camera.

Since he posted it on Facebook this week the views are in the millions. He's hoping the attention around his video will end in a record deal.

In the video you can see Knight's immediate reaction after shooting himself. He headed straight to the hospital where he got stitches, and found through an x-ray that he had swallowed the bullet.

Indianapolis police have opened an investigation. An officer says an act like this can result in felony charges of criminal recklessness especially if it's found that the person did it for their own amusement. He called it one of the 'most reckless and inconsiderate' things he's come across as a police officer.
