Rapper Tray Deee, a member of the hip-hop group Tha Eastsidaz, was in Long Beach, Calif., police custody Saturday after being arrested for allegedly shooting at people outside of a business.

No one was injured and the 37-year-old rapper, whose given name is Tray Muhammad, was arrested at his Fontana home Friday several hours after the alleged shooting, said Officer Jana Blair of the Long Beach Police Department.

He was booked for felony assault with a deadly weapon and was being held in the city jail with bail set at $50,000. There was little information on the shooting's circumstances, Blair said.

"Someone fired a handgun in the direction of individuals in front of an establishment. Someone identified him as a possible suspect," she said.

An investigation was underway and detectives expected to present evidence Wednesday to the Los Angeles district attorney's office, which will decide if charges should be filed.

Tha Eastsidaz, which also features rappers Snoop Dogg and Goldie Loc, has released two albums.
