Teen Mom star Bariki “Bar” Smith has more than enough on his plate right now. In addition to his getting engaged to his baby mama Ashley Jones, he’s been strugglign with the conviction of his brother who was linked to a murder. Now, it’s clear that this isn’t the end of the family’s struggles: news just broke that his sister was shot.
Bar’s controversial mother, Shen, reported on the incident via Facebook: “God i got a call One of the kids i raised was shot last night ugh i hate being this far bit momma is coming baby,” she wrote. “She is okay tjank god . i wish theu would al get the hell out of there and come to live out here this is gonna be one of them days smh.”
Ironically, when Shen initially called Bar to reveal the news to him, he didn’t pick up because of the growing tension between them. “Someone tell my hard headed son it’s an emergency call,” Shen wrote, saying that Bar’s “phone is off.”
Shen shared more news with fans, writing, “One of the girls I raised was shot last night — three times.” Mercifully, she survived. “But she’s OK,” Shen wrote. “I talked to her this morning and she’s doing good.”
Local paper East Bay Times reported on a shooting at the same time, which is likely the same incident. The shooting took place at 8:51PM on June 22 in the 2000 block of 80th Avenue in East Oakland.
According to the report, Shen’s daughter “told police she was walking when she heard gunshots and saw that she had been wounded.”
