Rapper French Montana and his crew were simply hanging with fans outside a Philadelphia hotel after his sold out concert Thursday.

That’s when the unthinkable happened. An unknown man opened fire on the group outside of the Holiday Inn on Penn’s Landing, NBC 10 reports. The shooting left one fan dead and another hospitalized with a bullet wound to the shoulder.

NBC 10 reports that an unnamed 27-year-old man was shot in the stomach and rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A second fan was also hit and is in stable condition at Jefferson University Hospital.

It is unknown who opened fire on Montana, whose real name is Karim Kharbouch, and others. The police interviewed the rapper, his entourage and fans about the incident. Montana tweeted the photo below with the caption, “ain’t nobody got time for this shit.”

Three people were taken into custody for carrying guns and investigators said that someone inside the bus returned fire after initial shots were fired. The Associated Press reported that police don’t think Montana and his crew were the targets and neither victim appeared to have ties to Montana.

Montana was in concert with Philadelphia native Meek Mill earlier that night. Montana took the photo below on his tour shortly before the shooting.
