Waka Flocka Flame Involved in Shooting at Studio: Report
Three gunmen reportedly opened fire on an Atlanta-area studio that Waka Flocka Flame was recording in on April 4, according to Friday afternoon (April 12) tweets from Channel 2 Action News reporter, Michael Seiden. Thankfully, the Flockaveli rapper was not injured.
According to statements Seiden says he retrieved from police and witnesses, there were nearly a dozen people in the studio at the time the shooting began. Police have confirmed witness statements that there were three gunmen, but they have still not been identified or apprehended.
When police arrived at the studio, which has been identified as Zac Recording in the northwest area of Atlanta, they were reportedly greeted by two occupants who were also armed. The two occupants then disclosed that their friend had been shot in the arm. It remains unclear whether Waka was the intended target.
Waka, who said he planned to focus less on music and more on family last November, has yet to comment on the matter.
