Our nation was shaken to the core yet again on Wednesday morning when two gunmen opened fire inside the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.

14 lives were lost and 17 others injured, making this the biggest mass shooting in the country since the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

But while we all are heartbroken to hear of the tragic news, the incident hits closer to home for others, including actress, Holly Robinson Peete.

The facility where the shooting took place provides housing, work programs, therapy and social services to more than 30,000 people with developmental disabilities, something that Peete is very familiar with. “It’s just nauseating to me, especially because it was at a Regional Center,” she told HipHollywood exclusively during Ebony’s Power 100 Gala.

“As a mom of a kid with autism, we spent the last 15 years at Regional Centers in California, so I know the work that they do there with the special needs community and that something like this would go down in that kind of space,” she said.

“But no different than a school shooting in Connecticut, no different that a concert in Paris, it’s got to stop. I understand prayers are very important, we can pray, but we have to put something in action.”


Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response



HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.

We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.

After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:

“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”

He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”

The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.

As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.

Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
