Fetty Wap Involved in Dispute That Results in Shooting
Fetty Wap's name has once again been linked to some drama. One month after being accused of trashing a surgeon's house, NorthJersey.com reports the "Trap Queen" rapper has been linked to a shooting at an all-night deli in South Paterson, N.J.
The site claimed the shooting was allegedly linked to a confrontation between Fetty's crew and another group of people, but now, TMZ is reporting the events that led to the shooting began with Fetty getting robbed. According to their sources, Fetty had his chain and some cash snatched from him while he was in Paterson, N.J.
Apparently, law enforcement was dispatched to Montclair Ave and Paxton Street around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning (March 26) after shots were fired, and police quickly located two men that had been shot in the incident. One victim was shot in the leg, while the other was hit in the torso. Luckily, none of the wounds were considered life-threatening.
Two of the victims were taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, N.J., while a third reportedly checked himself into Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, N.J. Fetty did not suffer any injuries in this incident.
Paterson Deputy Police Chief Troy Oswald confirmed that Fetty and his friends were involved in the shooting, but never disclosed the specifics of the confrontation that led to the shooting. Neither he nor anyone else in his unit confirmed that the shooting had anything to do with another rapper.
Fetty has been pretty quiet over the last several months, but lately he's been getting back to the music. About two weeks ago, the "My Way" performer unleashed two new freestyles for his fans. For one of them, he hopped on Lil Uzi Vert's “XO Tour Llif3.” The other was a take on SahBabii’s track, "Pull Up Wit Ah Stick.”
XXL has reached out to Fetty's reps for comment.
