Offset Possibly Targeted In A Drive-By Shooting
Offset was recording at an Atlanta studio on Wednesday night during a drive-by shooting at the same location.
According to reports from TMZ, a studio where the Migos rapper was recording was “peppered with bullets.” Law enforcement sources who spoke with the publication said that the shooting occurred around 9 p.m at the Crossover Entertainment Group studio in Atlanta, Georgia. When police arrived at the scene, they found damage to three vehicles as well as the exterior of the building.
There were reports following this incident that one person on the scene had been shot in the leg, but police were unable to locate a shooting victim. Surveillance video shows a person leaning out the window of a car while firing at the building.
Anonymous sources also told TMZ that the shooting happened shortly after Offset stepped outside of his recording session to get some air. The remaining people inside the studio ended up hiding in an interior room following the shooting and the rapper had reportedly left the scene already by the time officers arrived.
The Migos member isn’t on the best of terms with the law right now–facing three felony gun charges and another warrant for allegedly breaking someone’s phone–so it makes sense that he didn’t want to be seen caught up in the commotion of a crime scene.
