No connection to Mo3’s murder
Dr. Rose is the second rapper shot this week in Dallas, Texas.
Melvin A. Noble, known as Mo3, was shot dead on a Dallas highway this week in broad daylight. The 28-year-old rapper was sitting in his car when he was approached by a gunman. Noble exited his car on the highway and began to run away from the shooter before he was chased and shot to death.
Dallas police say that there is no connection between the two rap artists being shot only days apart. M03’s manager also expressed doubt about the shootings being connected, according to a local report.
Dr. Rose grew up in poverty
He is a graduate of Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry. A short bio on his dental practice website reveals that he became a successful dentist despite being surrounded by poverty and crime.
“Growing up in one of the worst poverty-filled neighborhoods in Dallas, odds were against me even though it sounds like a movie cliché,” he shared on the dental practice website. “Family members were involved in the streets, but I kept to myself and found a home in sports.”
His Instagram page shows that he performs a variety of dental procedures and his clientele includes celebrities.
Police have not named any suspects and the crime is still being investigated.
Dr. Rosenborough and the other two victims in the shooting are currently receiving treatment and their condition is unknown.
