3 injured as Young Thug targeted in drive-by shooting in Miami, rapper unhurt
Rapper Young Thug's car and his two party buses were shot at early Friday morning in Miami. Witnesses revealed three people were injured in the incident. According to TMZ, Young Thug was seen in a Ferrari with two buses alongside him on Interstate 95 route around 6 a.m. local time when an unknown person pulled up next to them and opened fire.
Law enforcement sources said two men and a woman on the buses were rushed to hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. It was also revealed that the rapper was not hit. While some witnesses claimed the rapper was at the scene when the bullets were fired, his close sources said he had left the party an hour earlier.
It appeared that the group was on the way to Miami Beach Hotel before the shooting. Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams had performed at the LIV Nightclub and is scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami on Saturday. It is said that cops are still investigating the shooting.
The incident is the second time a famous rapper was targeted this week. TMZ earlier reported that rapper Offset was peppered with bullets Wednesday night in a drive-by shooting. The shooting, which occurred outside of the Crossover Entertainment Group recording studio in Atlanta, Georgia, reportedly happened shortly after Offset stepped outside for fresh air.
According to Fox News, law enforcement officials confirmed the shooting but sources, however, have been unable to confirm if Offset was actually involved as he was nowhere to be found by the time the police had arrived at the scene.
