CORDOVA, Tenn. A Memphis rapper who goes by Casino Jizzle was the victim in Saturday's shooting outside a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in Cordova, according to his manager.
According to authorities, a woman and her boyfriend were inside the Chuck E. Cheese on North Germantown Parkway redeeming tickets when he told her he was going out to his vehicle. Several minutes later he returned with a gunshot wound.
Police identified the victim as Robert Tunstall. The 23-year-old man was rushed to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
Investigators said they located a handgun on the ground outside and one spent shell casing.
Tunstall's manager, Angie Strange, said he is in ICU with a gunshot wound to the back and chest, but is expected to be OK.
Friends said Tunstall was at Chuck E. Cheese with his girlfriend and her kids.
This isnt the first time Tunstall has been involved in violent crime. He pleaded guilty to felony theft and robbery in 2014, and Memphis Police say they got a call earlier this year about a drive-by shooting in his Hickory Hill neighborhood.
Tunstalls sister told police she believed her brother was the target in that shooting.
Strange said Tunstall, aka Casino Jizzle, is unsigned but has interest from major music labels, and he's trying to change his life. Just four days before the shooting, he was giving out Thanksgiving meals in Memphis.
I know hes a gangster rapper but hes used his music to change his life," she said. "Hes got major labels looking at him & has had good local success. Hes worked hard to become a positive person & weve been very proud of his progress as an artist & as a man.
Police recovered surveillance video which showed the victim walking outside. There was reportedly a flash followed by the victim running back into the building.
WREG has been unable to reach Chuck E. Cheese' corporate office to get a copy of that video.
Memphis. Gangster Rapper. Chuck E Cheese.

About 35 years ago, I knew a jerk who was a local metro bus driver. He alleged to be a black belt, and probably was in some art, as he had the belts around the couple times I visited. Three times in about as many years, whenever there was an altercation or incident reported on one of our city buses, he was the driver.

I was always a showbiz pizza man myself.
