Rapper Offset's life is in danger. Witnesses say the 27-year-old Migos rapper was the target of a drive-by shooting at Crossover Entertainment Group recording studio.
The shooting occurred around 9 p.m. Wednesday night, shortly after Offset stepped outside for fresh air.
Surveillance video shows a vehicle driving past the building. An unknown gunman hangs out the passenger-side window and sprays the exterior of the building with bullets.
When Atlanta police arrived, Offset, 27, was already gone from the premises, according to Billboard.com. One person was reportedly shot in the leg. But he, too, was gone by the time police arrived.
Police recovered shell casings from the street and parking lot where three cars were hit by gunfire.
Offset, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, is wanted by Sandy Springs police for an altercation involving a teenager at a Target store in April. An arrest warrant was issued for the rapper after he was caught on video knocking a cell phone out of the fan's hand.
Police released the following statement about the shooting:
"On May 8, 2019, at around 9:05 p.m. Atlanta Police responded to 1310 Ellsworth Industrial Pkwy in reference to a call of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers spoke with the reporting party who advised that while he and others were at the location, occupants of a dark SUV started to shoot towards the building," the department stated.
"The shooting resulted in damage to three vehicles, the building and the window of an apartment in the area. 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 the shooting. One of the reporting parties advised 'Offset' had been at the location at the time of the incident. That information has not been verified as 'Offset' was not on scene when police arrived. The investigation continues."
