A shooting outside a Miami Gardens Restaurant during a video shoot for French Montana has left multiple people injured.
The “Higher” rapper was filming a video outside The Licking restaurant on Thursday night (Jan. 5) in Miami Gardens. According to multiple reports, at least one person opened fire, leaving ten people injured.
Witnesses said New Orleans rapper Rob49 was among those shot during the terrifying incident. It is unclear whether French Montana was hit. A witness told TMZ the rapper was whisked away by his security.
Miami Gardens Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units responded to the scene shortly before 8 p.m.
A law enforcement source stated there are three different crime scenes, although further details are scant at the time. Miami Gardens Police are yet to confirm the number of victims.
“We’re still working [the scene]. Yeah, there’s multiple shots, there’s multiple cases,” MGPD detective Diana Gorgue told Miami 7 News. “We’re still working. We can’t confirm any numbers at this moment, because everything is still fresh, and they’re still investigating.”
Four victims were reportedly airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center. No fatalities have been reported.
“We had a total of 10 [victims]. Four brought themselves to the hospital, and we’ve treated six transported,” a first responder said in radio transmissions.
French Montana was seen before the shooting, filming a music video, as footage circulated online confirms.
One witness reported more than a dozen rapid-fire gunshots.
“At least 13, 14, 15 gunshots. It was very rapid, it sounded like an assault rifle,” Ced Mogul claimed.
“I took off running, and I was looking back, but I was like, ‘You know what? Let me just duck first, and then people started asking me, you know, ‘Can you help me?’” said Mogul. “When I realized people were asking for help, there was nothing you could do about it when you got shot.”
This situation is developing.
