Earlier this morning (March 4), former G-Unit rapper Young Buck was shot at 11 times while driving an SUV in Nashville, Tennessee.
NBC 4 reports that at approximately 3:30 AM, a white Chevrolet Tahoe drove past Buck’s SUV and opened fire hitting the vehicle 11 times.
Though the rapper, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, was not hit in the gunfire, contrary to some reports, a female passenger was hit once in the shoulder. Metro Police say the woman was treated and released at Vanderbilt Hospital while another passenger in the vehicle was not injured.
The shooting came after Buck was holding a cookout and videoshoot at his Nashville residence, taking to Twitter to publicize the event. Though he’s been trying to pick his career back up since his falling out with former label, G-Unit the rapper has been harried with deep financial hardship over the years—facing Chapter 7 in October 2011 resulting in the liquidation of his assets. A trustee administering his estate revealed in December that she has plans to sell his “Young Buck” moniker as part of the liquidation.
As of press time, there has been no word on the shooting from Young Buck’s camp. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as new information becomes available. —Ralph Bristout
