Written by on May 9, 2019

Offset might have been the target of a potentially deadly shooting Wednesday night at a recording studio, according to a new report.

The shooting, which occurred outside of the Crossover Entertainment Group recording studio in Atlanta, Ga. reportedly happened shortly after Offset, 27, stepped outside for fresh air – this according to TMZ.

The outlet said multiple people who were inside the establishment fled to another room when the gunshots began.

Law enforcement officials confirmed the shooting in a statement on Thursday and said the investigation is ongoing. However, authorities were unable to confirm if Offset – whose real name is Kiari Cephus – was involved. Officers told us that when police arrived at the scene, the “Father of 4” rapper was nowhere to be found and while police have yet to speak with him, they plan to during the course of their investigation.

“On May 8, 2019 at around 9:05 p.m. Atlanta Police responded to 1310 Ellsworth Industrial Pkwy in reference to a call of shots fired,” the statement obtained by Fox News reads. “Upon arrival, officers spoke with the reporting party who advised that while he and others were at the location, occupants of a dark SUV started to shoot towards the building.”

“The shooting resulted in damage to three vehicles, the building and the window of an apartment in the area. It was initially reported that someone was shot in the leg, but officers were unable to locate a gunshot victim. Investigators are working to determine the circumstances surrounding of the shooting. The investigation continues.”
