Ludacris’ longtime manager Chaka Zulu survived a deadly shooting in Atlanta.
The veteran music executive and two other victims were shot in the Buckhead section of Atlanta on Sunday (June 26). Former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed issued a statement about Chaka Zulu’s condition on Monday (June 27).
“We are fortunate to report that Chaka Zulu is in stable condition and recovering,” Reed told WSB-TV’s Michael Seiden. “The family thanks everyone for their well wishes and prayers, and asks for their privacy at this time.”
According to 11 Alive News, officers said the shooting stemmed from an argument in a parking lot behind a shopping center on Peachtree Road. One man died from injuries suffered in the gunfire. Chaka Zulu and another victim needed surgery but survived the shooting.
Police haven’t apprehended the gunman as of Monday afternoon. No information about the suspect has been released to the public.
