An Alabama rapper has been arrested and faces charges related to a shooting on the film set for a music video near downtown Atlanta, police said.

LeParis Dade, 24, also known as OMB Peezy, was arrested Monday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, jail records show. Atlanta police and the U.S. Marshals Service took Dade into custody without incident, according to police spokesman Officer Anthony Grant.

Dade was booked into the Fulton County Jail, where he remains on a $60,000 bond, Fulton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said. Dade must agree to be fitted with an ankle monitor and surrender his passport before he can post bond, Flanagan said.

The shooting took place at 598 Wells Street, where rappers Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg were filming a music video Feb. 21. Responding officers found one man at the scene who had been grazed by a bullet and later located two others who had been injured and were taken to the hospital, Grant said. All three were in stable condition, Grant said.

One man was arrested at the scene and charged with drug possession, but he is not considered a suspect in the shooting, Grant said.

Neither Roddy Ricch, whose real name is Rodrick Wayne Moore Jr., or 42 Dugg (Dion Marquise Hayes), was injured in the shooting.

OMB Peezy is known for his song “Big Homie,” which has more than 32 million views on YouTube and nearly 10 million streams on Spotify. According to OMB Peezy’s official social media accounts, the rapper’s next album is scheduled for release Friday.
