Multiple people were shot and injured on Thursday night (January 5) during an apparent video shoot for French Montana, local outlets NBC 6 and CBS 4 report. According to the reports, the inciting altercation had started in a different location and ended with the shooting in the parking lot of a restaurant called the Licking, where Montana had been filming.
In a statement to CNN, the Licking said, “We were not aware of a video being filmed and found out last [minute] French Montana was shooting a scene in the back parking lot. We have no idea what actually took place. The Licking restaurant has nothing to do with the incident and has given police the necessary footage requested.”
