Sources at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) said the fat in his abdomen helped to prevent damage to his vital organs by the .380 bullets.

Investigators said the incident stemmed from an argument earlier in the VIP box over ice. The disagreement later boiled over when the men exited. A scuffle ensued and one of the men fired several shots, hitting Casual and an occupant of his car, 30-year old Shawn Hinds.

Hinds was later removed from the GPHC by a female and taken to a private hospital for treatment.
