Yo Gotti's concert tour bus targeted in Nashville shooting, no injuries reported
Police statements said the bus was unoccupied at the time of the attack and was shot up after he performed free for fans at the Mercy Lounge
Rapper Yo Gotti's tour bus was shot at late Tuesday night. According to the Tennessean, the 'Break it up' singer's tour bus was struck by gunfire in Nashville. The incident comes hours after another rapper YFN Lucci's car was peppered with bullets in a drive-by shooting in Atlanta.
The rapper's bus was shot up after he performed free for fans at the Mercy Lounge. The special guests included 42 Dugg and Co Cash and the tour wraps up on Thursday. According to Complex, Kris Mumford, a police spokeswoman, in her statement said officers responded to an intersection near the Loews Vanderbilt hotel and saw that the tour bus was struck by multiple bullets and that it was unoccupied at the time of the attack.
Gotti reportedly wasn't in the bus at the time of the purported shooting. There were no injuries leading authorities to classify it as an act of vandalism. The case is still under investigation.
Gotti is no stranger to gun-related incidents. Back in 2017, Los Angeles police arrested his friend, Corey McClendon, on the charge of attempted murder after an argument with Gotti's then-rival Young Dolph led to Dolph being shot.
In October of 2018, McClendon was sentenced to 10-14 years for his involvement in the incident. Gotti, a rapper from the Memphis area, has released multiple albums over the last two decades and earned various award nominations, including at the BET Hip Hop Awards. According to XXL, there was no comment yet from Gotti's team about the incident.
