The year has already gotten off to a rocky start, with French Montana and Rob49 becoming the latest rappers embroiled in a brutal feud. According to NBC Miami, the two were at a film shoot in Florida on Thursday (January 5) when shooting erupted.
Local police responded to a ShotSpotter call prior to 8 PM last night. It brought them to The Licking Miami Gardens on Northwest 27th Street. Detective Diana Gourgue is providing the media with updates, sharing that the altercation initially began in one location, and moved to the restaurant later.
Ultimately, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue says that a total of 10 people were injured at the crime scene. Four of them were able to bring themselves to the hospital, while medical officials transported the other six.
At this time, the condition of their injuries remains unknown. Reports circulating online state that Rob49 himself was hit by bullets, but remains in stable condition. Montana’s bodyguard, however, is suffering a far worse fate. Allegedly, he’s been fighting for his life following the shooting.
The gunfire apparently rang out as a result of a robbery. Another artist, Ced Mogul, was on location at the video shoot behind a KFC. After someone’s things were stolen, filming moved to The Licking, where guns were a blaze.
As far as we know, no arrests have presently been made, though police continue to investigate the situation.
Many social media users have already been reacting to the news. Specifically, several are condemning those keeping some of the more gruesome footage circulating online.
“If you’re sharing videos of the aftermath from that French Montana video shoot WITH PEOPLE LYING ON THE GROUND BLEEDING OUT, reevaluate your fucking life cos that’s ugly, heartless behaviour,” one person wrote.
