This sounds scary!
Fetty Wap was reportedly involved in a shootout in his New Jersey hometown over the weekend after a deli argument prompted gunfire.
According to The North Jersey Record, the rapper was not injured in the shooting that sent three men to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say Wap (real name Willie Maxwell) and his buddies were at the deli on Montclair Avenue at around 5 a.m. on Sunday when they allegedly got into “a heated altercation” with another group.
The altercation turned physical, and quickly escalated into three victims being struck by bullets. Police said in a statement:
“During a physical altercation inside the deli, a male victim was physically assaulted with a firearm. The altercation then spilled out onto the street, and shots were fired, during which three gunshot victims were struck.”
Authorities are also investigating a robbery that happened during the incident. A rep for Fetty did not comment on the matter, but police said the 25-year-old was not a suspect in the shooting or the robbery.
Authorities arrested a man named Raheem Thomas as a result of the incident. He is being charged with aggravated assault and weapons offenses.
As for the gunshot victims, police said a 34-year-old man was found at the scene with bullet wounds to his leg, while another was found blocks away with a wound to his torso. The third victim had checked himself into a local hospital.
The performer doesn’t seem too fazed by the scary incident, as he capped off the weekend by posting some profound, everyday thoughts on Twitter:
