UPDATE: Young Buck Drive-By Shooting Still Under Investigation

Last Sunday’s (March 4) drive-by shooting that left Young Buck’s SUV riddled with 11 bullets and his girlfriend wounded in the arm in Nashville is still under investigation.

“The investigation is still ongoing,” a rep for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department’s Office of Public Affairs confirmed with

The Tennessean originally reported that in the early morning of Sunday, March 4, Buck and his girlfriend, Kenyetta Rainey, 32, were involved in a heated argument outside of South Nashville’s, La Bamba nightclub. They were then the targets of a drive-by shooting, as shots were fired from a white Chevy Tahoe at Buck’s Cadillac Escalade at approximately 3 a.m. on the I-24 near the Shelby Avenue exit. One of the 11 bullets grazed Rainey on the shoulder. Buck then drove her to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she was treated and released. Buck, real name David Brown, nor a second man riding in the Escalade were injured in the shooting.

After a couple of days of silence, Buck took to his Twitter to address the situation. “We all go through things in life,” the former G-Unit star tweeted. “The things I’m experiencing are Truly making me a Better and Stronger man. #GodisGood.”

This serves as another bump in the road for the troubled MC, who filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2011, in hopes of reorganizing his finances and holding off his debts. However, a trustee assigned to the case said that the reorganization was not viable and deemed later in the year that Buck was facing Chapter 7, which includes the liquidation of his assets.

Stay tuned to as new information on the shooting becomes available.—Ralph Bristout, additional reporting by Mark Lelinwalla
