French Montana Target of Tour Bus Shooting, One Person Dead and Another Injured

French Montana held a concert last night at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s Theater of the Living Arts. Shortly after it ended, he returned to his tour bus outside of the Holiday Inn on Penn’s Landing when someone driving by opened fire.

According to a report by NBC Philadelphia, French was outside of this tour bus engaging with his fans from the performance. The person who tried to attack French killed a 27-year-old man who was caught in the line of fire. Another victim was also shot in the shoulder and is in stable condition.

“It’s just ignorant. You fire into a crowd and you’re gonna hit somebody. In this case, unfortunately, someone was killed. Don’t know if they had anything to do with anything, if they were a fan or what,” said Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey.

Police authorities are questioning French Montana and 25 other people that includes his entourage and fans. So far, three people were taken into custody for gun possession. Investigators also note that someone inside the bus fired back after the initial shots.

There are no suspects in the shooting, but stay tuned as more information develops.

      That’s still no excuse or reason to open fire at someone. Especially into a crowd.

        well from their lyrics they invite this type of thing to happen… when do you see Snoop or TI getting shot at? They don’t because they are real and not a faker hiding out like most these rappers. You don’t have to be a thug to rap but be yourself

          You’re an idiot. Thats like saying every ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift can hurt her just because she opens up about their business.
