Rap Group Migos Involved In Miami Shootout
Bodyguard Injured *UPDATE* Manager Reports No Injuries “We Blasted 40 Rounds On Those N*ggas”
An altercation led to a shootout between Atlanta rap group Migos and an unknown party Friday morning, March 28, in Miami.
The group, consisting and rappers Quavo, Takeoff and Offset, were scheduled to perform at Club Iguana in Broward County. A disagreement led to them leaving without performing.
While en route back to their hotel at 3:30 a.m. a car pulled alongside their van and opened fire. One of the group members returned fire. During the shootout one of the group’s bodyguard was hit in the leg. He was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
“They were supposed to be performing at Cafe Iguanas in Broward and apparently for whatever reason there was an altercation or disagreement with management and they didn’t perform, so as they were driving southbound on I-95, according to the witnesses in the van, a dark vehicle pulled along side them and opened fire,” Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joe Sanchez told WVSN 7 News. “A member of the group was in possession of his personal handgun and he returned fire.”
Migos’ manager spoke with TMZ and denied an earlier report that a bodyguard was shot this morning. He says the bodyguard drove to the hospital because he thought someone in the van might have been hit, but luckily nobody was. He did acknowledge that the group returned fire.
“There was at least 40 rounds being blasted on those n*ggas,” he said.
