A popular beauty influencer nearly lost her life, while she was doing a makeup tutorial on Instagram Live, MTO News has learned.
The influencer, Cherish X Chels, is popular for her makeup and beauty tips. The Atlanta beauty decided to go Live last week – and the unthinkable happened.
While Cherish was describing her makeup and lifestyle tips with a fellow influencer, gun shots erupted outside of her apartment. Cherish lives in the Buckhead area of Atlanta.
MTO News has learned that more than a dozen shots were fired, and Cherish immediately was forced to take cover – and it was all captured on video.
Luckily no one was injured. MTO News confirmed that police were called to the scene, but did not locate any of the gunmen. It’s unclear who the shots were intended for.
A new FBI report released last month showed violent crime across the nation increased in 2020. Data Atlanta Police sent to the FBI for the report shows homicides in the city increased 62% from 2019 to 2020. Nationally, around Georgia and in Atlanta, robberies and property crime both decreased.
