A party van carrying the hip-hop group Migos was shot at in Miami-Dade County early Friday morning (March 28), according to multiple reports.
“Around 3:30 in the morning, that van was traveling southbound [on I-95] with eight occupants, [including] members of the entertainment group Migos,” Joe Sanchez of Florida Highway Patrol told NBC6 of South Florida. “For whatever unknown reason, a vehicle drove next to them and opened fire on them [with] several rounds. There was an exchange of gunfire between both vehicles, and the other vehicle fled.”
Someone in the Atlanta rap trio’s camp was allegedly hit, though it’s currently unclear who. The van then headed to the trauma center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where that individual was being treated for what Sanchez claimed was “not a life-threatening wound.”
According to a report by WSVN of Miami/Fort Lauderdale, the shooting occurred shortly after Migos were scheduled to perform at a nearby club called Cafe Iguana. “Apparently, for whatever reason, there was an altercation or disagreement with management and they didn’t perform,” Sanchez told the station.
However, the group’s manager told TMZ that no one in their vehicle was hurt during the incident. He added, though, that, “There was at least 40 rounds being blasted on those n—as.”
Friday afternoon, the group took to Twitter to remark on what had happened. “A lot of fuck n—as tried to take my life. But I keep that thang on me so you betta think twice,” their official account posted in a tweet that read like a rhyme.
Group member Takeoff followed suit. “Tried To Hit Me Up In Traffic??…. But I Had To Work My Magic,” he wrote, quoting Gucci Mane’s “Traphouse 3.” Another member, Quavo, tweeted, “Wonder if im gone be on first 48??? #NAH,” which was a loose quote of the group’s song “First 48.”
MTV News has reached out to both Migos and Florida Highway Patrol for comment but had not received a response by press time.
