A witness told TMZ that Montana’s security team got the “Unforgettable” rapper off-site safely, and he was presumed to be uninjured. Video on the website showed Montana working on the music video for new song “Igloo,” which features DJ Drama and Rob49 and is on Montana’s new album, “Coke Boys 6.”

Miami Gardens police and a representative for Montana — real name Karim Kharbouch — did not immediately respond to a Friday-morning request from the Los Angeles Times seeking details or comment.

There were no fatalities from the 8 p.m. shooting, according to the Miami Herald, though as of Thursday night, a law enforcement source told the paper that one of the victims was in critical condition. Shots broke out after an argument between two groups of people, the Herald said.

Witnesses told WSVN that a music video was being shot outside the location. Rapper Ced Mogul told NBC 6 Miami that the video was filming at a nearby KFC until someone there got robbed. The shoot then moved to the Licking, where he said Rob49 (real name reportedly Robert Thomas) was among those who were shot.
