6ix9ine found himself in another precarious situation Thursday night. According to TMZ, several shots were fired outside the Beverly Hills, Calif., mansion where Tekashi was shooting a video with Kanye West for his Dummy Boy project. Nicki Minaj, who is also reportedly featured on the track, avoided the incident since she was slated to arrive on set hours later.

Production was brought to a halt with no plans to resume as of press time. TMZ stated that there were approximately eight shots fired into the house, with at least one puncturing a bullet hole through a bedroom window -- a picture of which 50 Cent posted to his Instagram on Friday morning (Nov. 9).

The Beverly Hills Police Department provided the following statement to Billboard: "At approximately 10:25 hours last night, the Beverly Hills Police Department received a call of shots fired in the 900 block of North Alpine Drive. Once on scene, officers confirmed shots were fired at a building in the 900 block of North Alpine. There are no injuries reported and the investigation is ongoing."

Kanye West immediately left the scene following the shooting, according to TMZ.

Law enforcement is looking into the incident, which TMZ sources say could possibly be a violation of Tekashi's strict probation.

6ix9ine and Yeezy are both slated to release albums on Nov. 23.

Billboard has reached out to 6ix9ine and Kanye West's reps for comment.
