On Sunday, February 21, fans of Detroit rapper 42 Dugg and California rapper Roddy Ricch shared mutual concerns after learning there was a shooting incident at their video shoot in Atlanta. Thankfully both Dugg and Ricch are okay. However, two other men are currently nursing gunshot wounds. Early reports of the incident didn’t specify who had been shot, which led to growing concerns for the rappers. XXL obtained official police reports that explained that the two victims, Antoine Blake and Vernon Moulder, were rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital, where they remain in unknown condition.
According to reports, a third man was also grazed by a bullet during the shooting. Further investigation by police and medical personnel highlighted that Peter Cook’s injury was a result of debris from the scrap yard where the video was being shot.

Hours after the news broke, 42 Dugg hopped on Instagram Live with Lil Baby to assured fans that he was also doing okay. He also thanked his fans, who had been holding their breaths for some good news.
“Y’all stop with that fake sh*t, man. We ain’t been around no gun shooting, none of that,” Dugg said. “Real talk, man. We are good…Thanks for the love, though. I appreciate the love, though.”
The exact motive behind the shooting is still unknown. Police reports indicate that they were summoned around 4:00 PM after gunshots rang out on Wells Street in southwest Atlanta.
