On Wednesday night, shots were fired at Crossover Entertainment Group, a recording and rehearsal studio in the Berkeley Park neighborhood, according to an APD police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The incident was captured on surveillance cameras. Several vehicles and building windows were damaged at the building, which is located in the 1300 block of Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard. No injuries were reported. 

According to APD, witnesses believe the shooting took place, because Offset was present. However, law enforcement did not confirm whether the rapper was on the scene. 

The investigation is ongoing. 

Last week, Sandy Springs police issued an arrest warrant for the Migos member. He faces a felony charge of damage to property after video showed him slapping a cellphone out of a fan’s hands at a Target. 

In July 2018, he and his bodyguard were arrested in Jonesboro after a traffic stop. The rapper was charged with making an improper lane change, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of a weapon by a felon.
