One source on scene says witnesses describe hearing at least 10 shots fired off.

A chaotic scene erupted after shots were fired on the set of Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Tekashi 6ix9ine's music video, causing onlookers to flee.

According to the emergency dispatch audio, officials were notified of "shots fired" and immediately called in fire and ambulance to assist with any possible injuries.

According to reports Nicki Minaj was scheduled to join the pair for the video shoot but had not yet arrived.

With so many wonderful studios under the helm, Microsoft certainly has a good chance of taking the console crown from Sony. Fear not, Microsoft assures, "They will continue to operate autonomously with their unique talents, IP and expertise".

The Get Rich Or Die Tryin' artist, who did not appear to be present for the shooting, posted images of a bedroom window with a bullet hole along with a ribbing caption. According to TMZ, it seems like the perpetrator knew Takashi's schedule which makes a reshoot potentially unsafe. "Our family is safe and close", West tweeted on Friday, without going into any specifics. 50 Cent shared a photo of the bullet hole on Instagram.

Shortly after, 6ix9ine was reportedly kidnapped, beaten, and robbed of jewelry and money in New York City. The Blast reports that the home is located on Alpine Drive, which has been home over the years to celebrities like actor Gene Hackman, comedian Don Rickles, actress Donna Reed and actor Walter Matthau.

Tekashi69 was previously sentenced to four years probation in late October 2018, after being accused of "Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance" in 2015. Detectives are now reviewing surveillance video.
