A music video shoot in Beverly Hills including Tekashi 6ix9ine and Kanye West was interrupted by gunfire on Thursday night, according to TMZ.
Cops were called to the scene at 10:25 p.m. PT. A source told the tabloid site that about eight shots were fired in what appeared to be a drive-by. No one on set was harmed.
6ix9ine and West were filming scenes at the $80 million estate for a song on the Brooklyn rapper’s upcoming project, which also features Nicki Minaj, who had yet to arrive at the shot.
After the shooting incident, the producer immediately left.
According to a picture shared by 50 Cent, at least one bullet hit a bedroom window.
“Now somebody done shot my son video up in LA,” the rap mogul captioned the image.
Production for the video has stopped indefinitely. TMZ reported that the culprit knew the whereabouts and schedule of 6ix9ine, who has been involved in other violent incidents in the past year.
The “FEFE” rapper is currently on a four-year probation sentence for violating the terms of a plea agreement, where he admitted to using a 13-year-old girl in a sexual performance in 2015.
Under the terms of the deal, 6ix9ine was required to get his GED and complete 300 hours of community service. The rapper, however, was arrested two times in 2018 for allegedly attacking a teen in Texas and then for reportedly driving with an expired license and assaulting a police officer.
Lance Lazzaro, 6ix9ine’s lawyer, said the Beverly Hills incident does not violate the terms of the probation because his client was the victim.
Authorities are looking into the shooting, and the New York District Attorney’s office is also reportedly seeking information as well.
