Fetty Wap was reportedly robbed early Sunday morning (March 26) in Paterson, NJ and three people were shot after the incident. Shortly after, a masked man [since ID’d as Fuzz] took to the Internet rocking what looks like the New Jersey rapper’s 1738 chain.
According to multiple reports, Fetty was liberated of cash and his chain, but gunfire soon erupted.
Reports the Paterson Press:
Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, was not injured in the incident, police said. None of the people who were shot suffered life-threatening wounds, police said.
Paterson Deputy Police Chief Troy Oswald confirmed that Fetty Wap and several of his friends were involved in the shooting, which happened shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday at a deli on Montclair Avenue. Oswald said the hip-hop star and his friends are not suspects in the shooting or a robbery that happened during the incident.
Authorities would not confirm reports that the incident involved another hip-hop artist. Police did not provide details on the victims’ connection to Fetty Wap, nor did they reveal the nature of the dispute that led to the shooting.
In total three people were shot and made their way to local hospitals.
There is still no official word on what exactly happened. However, a photo of a masked man rocking Fetty Wap’s chain (see on the flip) made it onto the ‘Gram.
Per the caption of the photo, as reported by Vlad TV:
“Just to set the record straight. I personally didn’t take @fettywap1738 chain. I’m not responsible for no one else action but my own. I don’t have a personal problem Fetty Wap. He just a good kid in the way. How he got his chain taken I don’t know and I don’t care. That’s none of my business. Did I take a picture with it? Yes. The whole down the hill got a picture with it on. Now enjoy the rest of y’all night. 💪🏿 I will love to take the credit for it but unfortunately, my Instagram is no liar.”
That should make the cops’ jobs easier. SMH.
No word from yet Fetty Wap, who is not considered a suspect.
