AceShowbiz - 42 Dugg has further addressed reports of shooting on the set of his music video with Roddy Ricch. While going on Instagram Live with fellow rapper Lil Baby on late Sunday, February 21, the Detroit-born artist seemed to deny any involvement in the reported gunfire.
"Y'all stop with that fake s**t, man. We ain't been around no gun shooting, none of that," he said during a conversation with his "Grace" collaborator. Confirming that he and Roddy are both okay, he added, "Real talk, man. We good...Thanks for the love, though. I appreciate the love, though."
Earlier reports said that shooting took place during the music video filming for 42 Dugg and Roddy in southwest Atlanta on Sunday afternoon. According to WSBTV Atlanta, officers responded to shots fired at a scrap yard on the 500 block of Wells Street at around 4 P.M.
An eyewitness, who was working as a medic on set, told GSB-TV that the series of gunshots scattered approximately 50 people from the site. "Everyone started running, trying to get out. Or take cover, lot of places to take cover in there," the witness said. "Anyone that was injured, I laid hands on 'em to make sure they were OK. Just glad it wasn't a lot worse then it could have been…could have been worse."
While earlier reports said three people were injured in the incident, Channel 2 Action News reporter Steve Gehlbach later said that Atlanta Police have confirmed only two men were shot at music video shoot, and both are now in stable condition. He also reported that both victims are not the artists, though identities of the victims have not been released.
Meanwhile, one man was arrested on the scene, but it was for drug possession charge instead of being directly related to the shooting. It's still unclear though who was the target of the shooting, while the shooter has not been identified. It's additionally unconfirmed if 42 Dugg and Roddy were present on the set during the shooting.
Roddy has not spoken up on the incident, but his friend previously assured that the "High Fashion" star wasn't injured in the incident. "My n***a Roddy good, all the homies good," so DJ A-Tron tweeted.
