Fabolous Is Arrested After Being Shot

The Brooklyn-born rapper known as Fabolous was shot early yesterday in a Manhattan parking lot and later arrested along with three members of his entourage when officers found two loaded guns in the car that the men fled in, the police said.

The rapper, whose legal name is John Jackson, was shot once in the right thigh sometime after midnight, after leaving Justin’s, a soul-food restaurant at 31 West 21st Street near Fifth Avenue owned by the hip-hop mogul Sean Combs.

Mr. Jackson, 28, and his companions apparently rode off in a white 2005 Dodge Magnum, the police said. Officers responding to 911 calls of gunshots fired saw the Magnum run a red light and pulled it over. Inside the car were two semiautomatic pistols, one with its serial number filed off, the police said.
