Young Thug was reportedly targeted in a drive-by shooting early Friday.
Sources tell TMZ the incident occurred at around 6 a.m. on I-95 in Miami, hours after Thug's performance at LIV Nightclub. Witnesses claim the rapper was riding in a Ferrari alongside two party buses that were occupied by his crew. As the party made its way to the Miami Beach Hotel, another car pulled up next to the vehicles and opened fire, injuring three individuals inside. According to TMZ, Thugger was not hurt during the incident, and the three victims—two men and a woman—were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
Local authorities continue to investigate the shooting. Stay tuned as more details become available. Thug is scheduled to perform this Saturday at Rolling Loud Miami.
News of the shooting arrives just days after Offset was seemingly targeted in an Atlanta drive-by. The Atlanta Police Department has confirmed that the incident occurred at around 9 p.m. Wednesday outside the Crossover Entertainment Group studio, where Offset was recording. Sources say gunfire broke out shortly after the Migos rapper had stepped outside to get some air.
Offset had reportedly left the scene before authorities arrived.
"The shooting resulted in damage to three vehicles, the building and the window of an apartment in the area," police said in a statement. "It was initially reported that someone was shot in the leg, but officers were unable to locate a gunshot victim. Investigators are working to determine the circumstances surrounding of the shooting. The investigation continues."
