Some unsettling news broke in the bodybuilding community after it was reported that IFBB Pro Shane Post had been shot on April 19th, 2022. Post was shot after a brief argument with a neighbor over a parking spot at their townhouse in Waxahachie, Texas. Drop-in down below for more details of this tragic story and the NSFW security footage.
Bodybuilder Shane Post was shot in the torso on April 19th, 2022 in the parking lot of his gated townhome after a brief altercation with neighbor Nikki Brown.
Shane’s wife, Irina who is also an IFBB Pro bodybuilder said Shane was getting dropped off at home by a coworker when he pulled into the neighbor’s parking spot.
Within a few seconds, Shane’s neighbor, Nikki Brown, came outside wearing a bathrobe to confront the pair about pulling into the parking spot. Brown then pulled a loaded gun out from under his bathrobe and shot Post in the torso.
All of this was caught on a security camera and was witnessed by Shane’s wife and baby. After Post was shot, he stumbled to the ground and then pulled up his shirt to reveal the bullet wound. Brown walked away nonchalantly after shooting Post as Irina rushed over to check on Shane.
After officers arrived, they immediately began lifesaving measures until an ambulance arrived, then transported Post to Baylor Scott and White Hospital. According to Shane’s family, he is in the ICU at Methodist Dallas, and he has suffered injuries to his colon, pancreas, liver, and urethra. Shane’s mother said that the bullet is still in his body as it’s too dangerous to remove.
Apparently, this wasn’t the first run in that the Posts had with their neighbor Nikki Brown. Brown was taken to Ellis Country jail, where he was then bonded out. As of this time, the investigation is still ongoing. We will update this article when more details emerge.
