Freddie Gibbs was the target for a shooting that took place outside of Rough Trade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on early Tuesday, Nov. 4.

The gunman ran up to a black GMC Denali, which Gibbs and camp sat in, and shot inside, according to the New York Post. Gibbs and his crew were parked at North 9th Street, near Wythe Avenue, after performing at the record store.

"They tried to kill Tupac. They tried to kill me," Gibbs told the Post, claiming he was a target because "I'm Freddie Gibbs."

"I’m still alive," he continued.

The gunman was reportedly seen, through the surveillance footage, hanging out with Gibbs' camp both inside and outside of Rough Trade. Gibbs couldn’t identify the gunman when police showed photos of him or another man seen with him earlier in the night.

One victim was hit in the leg and another in the hand. Both are in stable condition after driven to Bellevue Hospital.
