Lil Baby’s music video shoot was marred by gunshots on Tuesday evening, leading to three people being hospitalized. Footage from the incident captured crew members setting up equipment before gunshots erupted, prompting chaos as bystanders and a cameraman sought cover.

The gunshots erupted when a group of men, allegedly posing as videographers, fired shots from a white car before fleeing the scene. Additional shots were heard on the footage, with a witness urging the shooter to conceal the firearm as the assailants had departed, according to Daily Mail.

According to FOX 5 Atlanta, police found a 23-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the neck, who had self-transported to the hospital. A 24-year-old man was shot in the arm and a 27-year-old man was shot in the back, both were taken to a nearby hospital. All three victims were reported to be “alert, conscious, and breathing.”

“The people who were shot were not part of the video production team but there may have been individuals involved in the totality of the production,” Major Ralph Woolfolk told FOX 5 Atlanta.

The shooting occurred near a commercial area on Verbena Street in northwest Atlanta.

Blogger Dre Hova shared a video post-shooting, alleging Lil Baby urged his team to depart, with one SUV sustaining damage. Lil Baby has not commented on the incident publicly.

A video from @SlappingTacosATL_, the Instagram account of a local taco shop, purportedly shows the rapper and his team arriving at the location hours before the shooting.

A spokesman for the shop later said: “These little hoodlums came and ruined my day! Lil Baby was about to buy all the food.

“I was on my way to deliver a burrito and they just came, boom boom boom! I thought, ‘Are you serious?’ It was crazy. I fell in between the bullets. It was nothing but bullets, pow pow pow! It was terrible.”
