A man was shot and killed last night in Philadelphia following an altercation that took place outside of French Montana‘s tour bus.
The Bad Boy Records rapper and his friends were reportedly fraternizing with fans following a performance in the nearby area. According to NBC 10, the shooting happened outside of the Holiday Inn on Penn’s Landing.
A 27-year old man was shot in the stomach and rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A second fan was also hit and is in stable condition at Jefferson University Hospital. Multiple sources are reporting that neither Montana nor his cohorts were targets of the assailants and that the shooting seems to have been a beef between two groups of warring fans. Authorities have interviewed witnesses on the scene including the Excuse My French rapper and his entourage about the incident.
This comes only days after the “Pop That” rapper reminisced about being shot to Life + Times. “So I come out the studio, I’m walking like this. All I see is just two ni–as..two hammers [guns], at my head,” remembered French. “As soon as everybody started moving in on me, everybody ran,” French explained to the site. “So I’m the only one stuck. I’m stuck, feel me? I got shot [in the] back of my head. Somebody died back there.”
