3 shot in attack at Lil Baby music video set in Atlanta

Rapper Lil Baby was shooting a music video in Atlanta, when a group of men nearby allegedly opened fire towards the crew, wounding three people.

The incident took place Tuesday afternoon in the shopping district of Verbena Street, in Northwest Atlanta. Multiple videos of the attack and the immediate aftermath were obtained by TMZ.

The outlet reported that a group of men were allegedly pretending to film something of their own near the set, before they drove by and fired shots from a white vehicle. They quickly sped away.

Three men were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. A 24-year-old man was shot in the arm and a 27-year-old man was hit in the back, according to Atlanta police.

Authorities say a 23-year-old, who was shot in the neck, somehow managed to transport himself to a local hospital for treatment. None of the shooting victims’ identities have been released at this time.

Lil Baby, who was uninjured in the shooting, is allegedly one of the voices heard yelling in the clips, although it’s unclear what exactly he’s saying.

A semi-automatic weapon can be heard firing nonstop for about six seconds in another clip, and additional footage shows multiple car windows shattered after the attack.

So far, no details have emerged on a possible motive for the shooting or the identities of the attackers.

Last September, gunfire erupted during a Lil Baby concert in Memphis, and resulted in one person in the audience being seriously wounded.

Police arrested the suspect, Kevin Young, later the same month, claiming he was a “known gang member” who was previously arrested in 2017 on murder charges.
