NFL's Aqib Talib Video From Dallas Gunfight ... At Least 4 Shots Fired

6/6/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained footage from outside the Aqib Talib shooting incident -- in which you can hear at least 4 gunshots fired.

The person who shot the video tells us ... he was aware of the ruckus inside V Live involving the NFL star -- and began recording when he saw a group of people gathering OUTSIDE the club. 

At one point, you can hear 4 gunshots ring out -- but it's unclear who fired. 

Important to note, the video appears in a Snapchat story format -- the edits in the footage were made by the person who recorded it, not TMZ. We're told the video remains in sequential order. 

We spoke with multiple sources connected to the investigation who tell us the video does sync up with the Talib incident.  

Talib was hospitalized for a gunshot wound to the leg but is said to be in "okay" condition.

6/6/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0603-california-screamin-disney-getty-01A Disney roller coaster ride became unhinged and a visitor, who was on the sidelines minding her own business, got knocked out by a bolt out of the sky ... literally.

Tatjana Goodall claims in a new lawsuit she was sitting on a park bench enjoying a cool drink when an errant bolt that had just flown off the California Screamin' roller coaster nailed her in the head, knocking her off the bench and rendering her unconscious.

Goodall claims she began vomiting, but the nurse at Disney California Adventure assured her the only worrisome sign would be if it was projectile vomiting, and she had the regular kind.

Goodall says she was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury, and she says there's permanent damage.

According to the lawsuit, the ride was shut down immediately after the incident.

Disney had no comment.

SoulCycle Sued I Got Creamed on Your Damn Cycle

6/5/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0603-soul-cycle-broken-ankle-lawsuit-GETTY-02SoulCycle's crappy instructors and faulty bikes are to blame for a catastrophic ankle injury ... so claims a very disgruntled customer. 

Carmen Farias claims in a new lawsuit she showed up to spin class in 2014 and, since she was a newbie, she expected someone would show her how to use the bikes. Farias says she started riding but quickly tired and the instructor barked, "We don't take breaks."   

Farias says she was so embarrassed she soldiered on, as her feet were locked to the pedals. She says she became so fatigued she fell off the bike with her feet still strapped in ... but the momentum of the fly wheel kept the pedals turning, and each rotation caused ankle dislocation.

She blames the bikes and lack of instruction for what she claims are catastrophic ankle injuries.

We reached out to SoulCycle, but they declined to comment.

Breaking News

0603-andrew-kornfeld-prince-TMZ-GETTY-01Andrew Kornfeld, the man who called 911 when Prince died, firmly believes he could have saved the singer with the backpack full of opioids he had at Paisley Park that morning.

The ME's report revelation that Prince died from a self-administered dose of Fentanyl ... seems to acquit Kornfeld and his father, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, of any involvement in the death. Andrew was delivering an opioid called Buprenorphine to treat Prince's addiction to Percocet. He insists Prince never took the drug.

Now Kornfeld is singing the praises of the synthetic opiate, saying it should be more accessible to addiction patients everywhere. Kornfeld tells CNN, he believes part of Prince's problem was that Buprenorphine is very difficult to get in Minnesota.

He added that if his father could have started treating Prince a week earlier ... he'd probably be alive.

Detroit Tigers Pitcher I Contracted Zika Virus ... It Sucked

Breaking News

0601-Francisco-Rodriguez-GETTY-01Forget the Olympics, the Zika virus has already infiltrated MLB -- with Detroit Tigers pitcher Francisco Rodriguez saying he contracted the virus in Venezuela during the offseason. 

The 34-year-old revealed his health status to ESPN -- saying his symptoms started off almost like a common cold ... but quickly escalated.

"It wasn't a cold. A cold, you have a sneeze, have a headache, take a couple Tylenol and you're done. You don't have a cold for two weeks, you don't have a bodyache for two weeks, you don't have headaches, throwing up, weaknesses for two weeks."

Rodriguez says he was bedridden for 2 weeks while he fought off the mosquito-borne virus -- which some experts say can cause severe birth defects and neurological issues in adults.

He also says it took him roughly 2 months before he started to feel normal again -- and notes that he was never considered contagious. 

As for Olympic athletes worried about catching Zika in Brazil -- Rodriguez says the concern is real.

"If they have plans to have kids in the future, you've got to think about it. You have to be aware of that as well. You have to do some homework, some research about it."

It may sound like a typical Halloween, but Michael says he suffered permanent damage, as well as mental and emotional distress -- though he doesn't list any specific injuries.

Nintendo doesn't seem to be sweating the suit -- a rep says, "We have nothing to announce on this topic."
