A French Montana music video shoot turned chaotic on Thursday as an unknown number of gunmen opened fire, injuring at least ten people. Fortunately, French Montana was not injured during the shootout. French Montana and his crew were filming a music video outside The Licking restaurant when the gunman (or gunmen) opened fire, shooting haphazardly. It is not clear what led to the gunfire, but police are investigating the incident.
Police Responded immediately
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units and Miami Gardens Police responded immediately to the distress call, which involved three crime scenes.
Diana Gorgue, an MGPD detective, said the police were still on the scene, where four victims were airlifted to a nearby trauma center while another four victims drove themselves to the hospital.
One witness, a local rapper who came to watch the video shoot, said a bystander was robbed of his wallet, keys, and a watch. “He asked to call his mother and see if we could get spare car keys and make sure, you know, he’s OK, and then the gunshots went off.” “There were at least 13 to 15 gunshots.” “It was very rapid; it sounded like an assault rifle,” the witness said.
At press time, it was not yet clear whether someone or some people shot into the bystanders or there was a gunfire exchange.
Asking for help at Video Shoot
“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?st duck first, and then people started asking me, you know, “Can you help me?” Ced Mogul, the local rapper, said “When I realized people were asking for help, there was nothing you could do about it when you got shot.”
Police said a fracas began at a different location but ended up at the Licking restaurant, where the victims included Rob49, one of the top rappers from New Orleans. It is unclear what led to the shooting, and no arrests have been made.
