Two Men Shot on Set of Video Shoot in Southwest Atlanta
Trouble broke out on the scene of Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg’s video shoot as two people were shot in the middle of a gunfight. According to reports from the Atlanta Police, the shooting occurred on the 500 block of Wells Street.
When the authorities arrived at the set of the video shoot, they learned that two men were wounded from gunshots and were already admitted to the hospital under their own power.
The two men were identified as Antoine Blake, 25, and Vernon Moulder, 29 on Monday morning. Both men are in stable condition after sustaining their wounds.
A third individual, Peter Cook, 39 was initially reported as a shot but later discovered he was only grazed by stray debris.

Outside of the shooting, Kenneth Swanson was arrested on drug possession charges. The Atlanta Police claimed that Swanson is “not a suspect for the shooting”.
Officer Anthony Grant who is the spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department released this statement on Swanson’s arrest:
“Officers found probable cause to arrest Mr. Swanson for possession of an illegal narcotic during their investigation and interviews with witnesses on scene.”
Police are still actively investigating the incident, attempting to identify the motive of the attack. 42 Dugg took to his Instagram to inform the fans that neither he nor Roddy Ricch were harmed during the shoot out at their video set.
The incident at Dugg and Ricch’s video shoot is another example of extreme violence in Atlanta involving Hip-Hop artists.
Last week, Cyhi The Prince was also involved in a shooting that caused him to wreck his SUV. Although Cyhi was not seriously injured from the drive-by, the rapper assured the police that the shooters were attempting to take his life.
After surviving his ordeal, Cyhi urged the people of Atlanta to stop the violence in the city and unify as a community.
