Cali Swag Fatal Shooting -- Beef Over A Girl?

5/16/2011 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Murdered Cali Swag District member M-Bone may have been targeted after a Twitter war over a girl ... sources connected with the group tell TMZ.

Cali Swag District
Our sources say M-Bone's friends have been in touch with cops, telling investigators after he got back to L.A. from his tour, he got involved with a girl.  M-Bone's friends say a guy who lived in the woman's building didn't like the relationship, and allegedly began threatening M-Bone via Twitter.

We're told M-Bone did not back down and the two men started cyber smack-talking each other.

TMZ has learned ... the black car in which M-Bone was shot is registered to the woman.

Cops are trying to figure out why M-Bone was driving the woman's car and whether the cyber war is in any way related to the shooting.

And one more important detail.  Witnesses tell TMZ, the shooter fired, left, then pulled a U-turn and came back around, possibly to see if he hit his target.  The upshot -- it might not be random, as first suspected.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

When they catch the killer, they can assure him that he'll have all the girlfriends he wants in prison.

Now THAT'S what you get for being a wanna-be badass out for revenge. You wanted to be a smartass. When that cell door slams on you you'll just be an ass.

I didn't believe it as random from the beginning. He was looking for trouble and he found it. Next.

This is not a "love" triangle. It sounds like one man wanted a relationship with a girl, and the other wanted to control her.

(Exactly why Rhianna should get a clue.)

Goes with the hip hop territory. This does not surprise me. My thoughts is for his family.
