The incident occurred on Thursday while Sexyy Red taped a music video at Oakland Park Flea Market in Florida, according to TMZ. During the taping, a gunman opened fire, striking two individuals before fleeing the scene. Deputies said one person died and another suffered injuries.
The condition of the injured person is unknown at this time, TMZ reports.
Broward County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the incident to determine if the shooting was linked to the actual video shoot. The deputies took two people into custody, but no formal arrests were made, according to Local 10 News.
“All we just hear is ‘bop, bop, bop, bop,’ one witness said, according to Local 10 News. “Everybody started running, bumping into each other — it was just crazy.”
Sexyy Red responded to the shooting via her Instagram Stories, sending condolences to the families of the killed and wounded victims. She also stated that the shooting “happened at a gas station across the street from the video set.”
“Florida Highway Patrol and Broward County Sheriff confirmed that the shooting wasn’t on my set.” Sexyy Red thanked her team for hiring off-duty officers and said the video, featuring rapper Sukihana, continued at a different location and wrapped without incident.
