(NOTE LANGUAGE) Following a police report that a person was shot on Wednesday, April 13 outside of DaBaby’s home in Troutman, North Carolina, the “Suge” rapper is claiming that he did the shooting.
“Heal up & live my boy! Just don’t bring ya a** back,” DaBaby commented over the weekend on Instagram. He added, “Chose not to take a n**** life the other day and it felt great,” with a thumbs-up emoji. “Buddy ain’t deserve to go, I step righteously.”
As previously reported, the Troutman Police Department shared on Facebook that officers arrived on scene at approximately 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, where they found one person suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound. That person was transported to a medical facility for treatment.
A local reporter says that he spoke with the Troutman Police chief on Thursday morning, who confirmed “rap star DaBaby was home at the time of the shooting when an unknown gunman entered the residence but wasn’t injured.”
Police have not confirmed that the eight-time Grammy nominee was involved in the shooting. TMZ posted audio of a 911 call they claim was made by DaBaby, born Jonathan Kirk. The voice says,“This guy was trespassing on my property. … I shot him in his leg.”
DaBaby is still facing two lawsuits in California for the alleged assault of Brandon Bills, the brother of his ex-girlfriend, singer DaniLeigh. In February, Kirk and Bills were involved in a skirmish inside a bowling alley, where the rapper and his entourage reportedly attacked Bills. Brandon says that the incident caused him “severe injury and pain.” DaBaby denies those claims and states he was protecting himself as a means of self-defense.
