An Alabama rapper was arrested in connection to a shooting at music video set in downtown Atlanta, authorities said. OMB Peezy was arrested Monday (March 1) and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, news outlets reported.

The shooting happened on Feb. 21 at a scrap yard where rappers Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg were filming a music video. Atlanta police said two men were wounded in the gunfire. Another man was injured at the scene but it’s unclear whether he was shot. Atlanta police spokesman Officer Anthony Grant said all three men were in stable condition. Neither Roddy or Dugg were wounded.

Another man was arrested at the scene and charged with drug possession, Grant said. The man wasn’t considered a suspect at the shooting. Fulton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said Peezy, whose real name is LeParis Dade, was taken to the Fulton County Jail, where he remains on a $60,000 bond. Dade must wear an ankle monitor and surrender his passport before he can post bond, Flanagan said.

It’s unclear whether he had an attorney who would comment on his behalf. Peezy, 24, has over 550,000 subscribers on YouTube, where he’s posted music, cooking and advice videos. He’s known for his song “Big Homie,” which has over 32 million views. Ricch assured fans he was okay following the reports of the shooting, tweeting "aint nobody shoot at me... we all good. im juss tryna feed the streets" on Feb. 22.

A day earlier, 42 Dugg also confirmed he was fine via an Instagram Live with Lil Baby. "Y’all stop with that fake s---, man. We ain’t been around no gun shooting, none of that,” he shared. “Real talk, man. We good... Thanks for the love, though. I appreciate the love, though.”
