The Huntsville Police Department is investigating the shooting, which occurred on Saturday (May 29). The incident took place around 4:30 p.m. on Binford Drive during a Boosie BadAzz music video shoot attended by 50 to 100 people, reports CBS News19. HPD Captain Michael Johnson tells the outlet a man in his 20s was struck during the gunfire and taken to a local Huntsville hospital where he was initially listed in critical condition. The man later died from his injuries.

Boosie appears to have escaped unharmed. He addressed the shooting on social media, denying the bullets were meant for him. "AINT NOBODY TRY TO KILL ME N HUNTSVILLE AL," he tweeted on Sunday (May 30). "YALL MFS BE HAPPY TO SPREAD LIES ON ME #LOL"

This is the second time in a year Boosie has been in the vicinity of shots fired. In the previous incident he was hit. Last November, Boosie was shot in the leg in Dallas, Texas while in town to attend a candlelight vigil for recently murdered Dallas rapper Mo3, who was shot and killed on Nov. 11, 2020.
Boosie's shooting reportedly occurred at a strip mall called Big T's Plaza. He was treated at a local hospital but refused to cooperate with the police investigation. While recovering from his leg injury, Boosie performed shows in a wheel chair.
