A member of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s crew allegedly fired a shot inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night (April 21), according to TMZ.
The publication reports the incident had nothing to do with 6ix9ine’s recently ignited rift with Adrien Broner — who was boxing Jessie Vargas on Saturday night — but is instead believed to relate to his long-standing beef with fellow Brooklyn rapper Casanova.
6ix9ine’s crew were reportedly walking down one of the hallways of the Barclays Center when they ran into Casanova and his entourage. The two crews are believed to have begun pushing and shoving one another when a member of 6ix9ine’s entourage allegedly fired a gunshot.
TMZ — citing law enforcement sources — reports a .32 caliber shell casing was recovered after the incident, but was not processed as arena staff had already handled it.
While no one was hit by the alleged shot, both crews are said to have quickly dispersed, with Casanova and his entourage leaving the arena completely. It’s reported 6ix9ine and his crew stuck around and were later interviewed by investigators, though police didn’t find any guns.
Police reportedly believe the person who fired the alleged shot fled the scene. No arrests were made.
A short while later, 6ix9ine appeared to address the situation in a video uploaded to social media.
“Niggas started running and shit,” 6ix9ine said. “His whole squad hit the floor.”
The police are reportedly continuing their investigation into the shooting. They do, however, believe the incident was a continuation of a separate situation that happened between the two crews on Thursday (April 19).
Casanova was filming a music video in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn last week when at least 10 shots were fired at his crew, according to TMZ.
It’s reported two men were hit, but both are expected to make full recoveries.
A member of 6ix9ine’s crew is now under police investigation in connection to the shooting.
6ix9ine and Casanova later engaged in a back-and-forth on Instagram regarding the shooting.
