During a photo shoot in downtown Austin, Texas, a 19-year-old man reportedly assaulted a photographer and robbed her at gunpoint. The reason? He was allegedly unhappy with the photos she was taking of him and his rap group.

A local news station KXAN reports that the man, identified as Jayden Cornell Green, approached the unnamed photographer asking her for a photo shoot. He wanted her to photograph him and his rap group Honcho Gang. They reportedly agreed to meet in Austin and she met them at the Gulf Station at 717 East 7th Street. But then, it’s said that the men started to complain about the photos she was taking. This is where it got serious.

According to the warrant, the men demanded that she handed over the camera to a member of the group “who knew how to take photos.” The woman then grabbed the lens, fearing that she might be robbed. “Green put the camera around another man’s neck, and one of the group members reportedly handed him a black semi-automatic handgun, which he placed inside his jacket.

At this point, the photographer was still holding onto her camera, and this is when she was attacked. She says that Green punched her and told her: “Let go of the f****** camera you stupid d*** b****.” And then, he reportedly pointed the gun at her saying: “Let go of the camera before I blast you.”

The photographer did let go, and the group left with the camera, KXAN writes. The victim drove home and called the police. Police officers conducted a social media search and identified Green as the man who attacked the photographer. They have issued a warrant for his arrest. He is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

Sadly, this isn’t the only dark story that happened in the same month. On 12 September, a photographer was shot nine times, also by teenagers. On 2 September, two reckless teenagers were taken into custody for allegedly being involved in a photographer’s death.

    There is nothing wrong with teenagers these days. The problem is the people of all ages who want things but don’t want to work for them. I would blame the culture of being an attention whore in our society. You only have to look at TV to see that you don’t need to be of value to have fame.

      Indeed, you have the point. :( But this is the third case in the same month that I see very young people commit very serious crimes. It’s probably me, but I just can’t believe people that young can be that rotten. :(

      Dunja Djudjic only three cases? That is insignificant.

      Adrian J Nyaoi three cases where specifically teenagers hurt specifically photographers. Three cases in the USA, and three cases that I know of and wrote about (and I am just ONE person, living thousands of kilometers from the US). I don’t see it as insignificant, but it could be that I’m overly sensitive.

    Her own damn fault for working with rappers…. rappers are the lowest form of life on the planet .
    At best you got a bunch of douchebag posers pretending to be racists, criminals, drug dealers gang bangers or prostitutes glorifying violence sexism, and crime… at worst… they’re not posers but are exactly what they present themselves to be…

    Why would anyone work with these animals and expact to get paid?

      Ps I don’t consider rap to be music either… a drunk at a Bar with a speech impediment trying to talk over a broken skipping record player would sound better to me than most of the crap they call rap…

      Don Barnard I don’t even listen to rap music, but I tend to disagree. :) There are many rap groups who sing (well, actually, rap) about important and deep topics and don’t glorify violence, crime and other bad stuff at all.
      Although, these guys apparently do. And sadly, they practice what they preach.
