Rapper NBA Youngboy, also known as Youngboy Never Broke Again, was involved in a shooting outside of the Trump Beach Resort near Miami, according to multiple reports. Video surfaced of the wild scene which allegedly involved a shooter open-firing on the vehicle carrying the rapper and his crew.
NBA Youngboy, who was in town to perform at the Rolling Loud music festival, was not injured in the shooting, but reports indicate a woman in the vehicle with him may have been transported to the hospital to treat a gunshot wound.
The gunman was allegedly killed when NBA Youngboy’s security guard pursued him and returned fire.
Reports have not yet been confirmed.
“An incident happened in Sunny Isles. We are working with investigators to see if they are related. Neither indicates a hate crime or terrorist event,” Aventura police said in a statement after news began to spread on social media.
From TMZ Sports:
Lots of folks are reporting that YoungBoy was NOT shot himself, but many others suggest his girlfriend, Kay Marie, was injured with a gunshot wound. The only thing cops are saying at this point is that one person was left dead in the shootout — we’re working on getting more.
The Aventura Police Department — which is a stone’s throw away from Sunny Isles, where NBA YoungBoy was reportedly shot at, — tells TMZ … another shooting happened in their jurisdiction, and investigators are looking to see if it might be related to what went down at the Trump beach resort.
There is no word on whether NBA Youngboy will still take the stage for his scheduled set.
