Cali Swag Video Star -- Witness In Fatal Shooting

5/17/2011 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man who was featured in the "Teach Me How to Dougie" music video has been identified as a witness to the murder of Cali Swag District member M-Bone ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.


We're told a heavyset man who goes by the name, "Bubba" -- was in front of the liquor store in Inglewood, CA Monday night when someone shot and killed M-Bone.

Bubba famously did the "Dougie" without a shirt on in the group's music video -- and is close personal friends with several members of C.S.D.

Several witnesses tell us Bubba was waiting inside of the car M-Bone drove to the store ... and when the fatal shots were fired, shards of broken glass struck Bubba in the face.  Witnesses also tell us M-Bone was shot as he tried to get inside of the car.

Bubba was hospitalized for his wounds -- though we're told the injuries are not life-threatening.

As we previously reported, cops are on the hunt for the killer -- and looking into the possibility the shooting was all over a girl.

Wow... CALIFORNIA law enforcement tells a gossip site who one of their key wittiness is to a MURDER... TMZ couldn't give a flip about whose life they jeopardize [forgive me, they do care, had this person been white, member of the tribe [JEW], of A CELEBRITY it would have been HUUUSSSSH...

I finally get it, the "no snitch" rule. the Californian "law enforcement" CANNOT be trusted. But it's not just an urban code, police don't snitch on other police, lawyers won't snitch on corrupt judges.. the whole effe'n system is effed-up.

TMZ!! Why would you post a picture of a witness for all to see??? Seriously, what is wrong with you guys? This guy is probably gonna get hurt because of you!

I can't believe they just put this guy's picture up for the killers to NOW target him. This is irresponsible TMZ and if something happens to Bubba, know that you had a big part in it all.

This isn't the cops doing... They got this from his band mates or girlfriend and posted it.

I bet the cops are pissed since this guy will stop helping now.. stupid TMZ you could have kept it secret. Lately you guys have ben going WAY to far and hell this guy could get shot now and it will be on you guys.

Its not like a guy who killed someone is going o be scared of doing it again or scared of killing the only person who saw the crime. Hell that NEVER happens..

lol, i just want to say that anyone who sits at their computer hitting refresh on tmz every second just so they can type "First"... lol, you are total losers. Every time I see that, all I can think is, "what a loser"! I mean truly, your life is completely meaningless. you need to think about that. You have serious mental issues that need to be addressed.
