At the time the incident occurred, five men entered a DeKalb condominium where Mane was visiting and exchanged gunfire with Mane before the men escaped. Clark is believed as one of the five men who confronted Mane. On the other hand, the promoter was injured and filed a complaint. Speaking about the rapper trial, Scheib said that case has been put on hold until October, pending a new investigation by authorities.
