French Montana video: At least 10 injured in a shooting where a music video was filmed




At least 10 people were injured in a shooting outside a Miami Gardens, Florida, restaurant where rapper French Montana was filming a music video, according to statements by the restaurant and the Miami Dade Fire Department (MDFR).

“Our hearts are heavy and we stand with the victims of this senseless act,” The Licking, a DJ Khaled-owned restaurant group with multiple locations, said in a statement to CNN.

“We were unaware that video was being filmed and found out at the last (ute) minute that French Montana was filming a scene in the back parking lot. We have no idea what really happened,” the statement continued. “Licking Restaurant has nothing to do with the incident and has provided the necessary footage requested to the police.”

CNN has reached out to Miami Gardens police for details on the shooting investigation.

According to MDFR, emergency units were dispatched just before 8 p.m.

“Upon arrival, fire units found several patients with traumatic injuries. In addition to finding injured patients at the initial location, firefighters also found other injured patients outside of a nearby fire station,” emergency officials said.

“Fire crews immediately began triaging to assess the extent of the patients’ injuries and for transport to the hospital,” according to MDFR. “As a result of the incident, a total of 10 patients were injured. Four of the patients self-transported to local area hospitals. MDFR transported the remaining 6 patients by ground and air rescue to local trauma centers.”

CNN has reached out to French Montana representatives for comment.

On Friday night, the musician made a statement about the incident on his official Twitter account.

“I was in Miami last night celebrating the release of my CB6 mixtape with friends at a local restaurant. Unfortunately, we were in the wrong place at the wrong time when an incident occurred that left people hurt. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families at this time.”

CNN’s Joe Sutton and Tina Burnside contributed to this alert.
