A 15-year-old boy is left injured after shooting erupts during the filming of the ‘Key to the Streets’ rapper’s music video in an apartment complex in Atlanta.
A teenager was injured after shooting erupted during the filming of YFN Lucci‘s music video in Atlanta. The rapper was filming his new clip in an apartment complex in the southeastern part of his hometown on late Wednesday night, June 3 when gunfire struck the set.
At least 21 bullets were fired in what was apparently a drive-by shooting conducted by three individuals, Atlanta police told WGCL-TV. The 15-year-old boy was hurt after a bullet grazed his thumb. The teen was not identified and it’s not immediately known if he was taken to the hospital.
One of the bullets also struck Lucci’s Bentley car. According to police, the 29-year-old rapper left the apartment complex without his luxury car before authorities arrived at the scene.
“The investigation revealed that at the time of the incident a music video production was underway when at least three suspects began shooting,” spokesman officer Steve Avery said in a statement. “In addition to the injured victim, several vehicles in the parking lot were damaged.”
Police are currently searching for suspects in the shooting and investigators are still probing whether the shooting had any direct link to Lucci or the video being filmed. Luckily, Lucci didn’t seem to be injured in the shooting and he has not addressed the incident.
Lucci, like many rappers, have been feuding with fellow artists, including his beef with Young Thug which made headlines earlier this year. He, however, barely has criminal record aside from his reported arrest in April 2017 when he was pulled over when driving in downtown Atlanta.
Upon searching his car, authorities found three weapons, while also noting that the car smelled like marijuana, even though no substance was found in the vehicle. He was released shortly afterward and tweeted about the incident, “I went to jail lastnight man I swear when u living they just won’t let u live.”
