French Montana Attacked In Drive-By Shooting, One Person Dead

After an attempt on Rick Ross' life, French Montana becomes the target of a drive-by shooting.

French Montana was the target of a drive-by shooting last night following a performance at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's Theater of the Living Arts.

According to NBC 10 Philadelphia, the Coke Boys leader was engaging with fans outside of his tour bus outside of the Holiday Inn on Penn's Landing when someone driving by open fired.

A 27-year-old man was shot in the stomach and rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Another victim was shot in the shoulder and is currently in stable condition.

Police are currently questioning 25 people including Montana about the incident. Three were taken into custody for carrying guns, as investigators say that someone inside the bus fired back after the initial shot. There are currently no suspects in the shooting.

"It's just ignorant. You fire into a crowd and you're gonna hit somebody. In this case, unfortunately, someone was killed. Don't know if they had anything to do with anything, if they were a fan or what," said Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey. "When you find people like that, they should just never see the light of day again. I mean that kind of behavior's just unacceptable. For me, there's just no rehabilitation for anything like that," Ramsey said.

This isn't the first drive-by shooting to occur in recent months. In January, Rick Ross was targeted in Florida, crashing his Rolls Royce into a building after gunmen shot at his vehicle.

He also took to Twitter shortly after the incident to post a picture from inside police headquarters, writing, "nobody got time for this shit."

    This question has nothing to do with this article but I was listening to the blueprint2 (song) and Jay has a line "Im sorry Ms. Rosie Perez, I call a spade a spade it just is what it is". Anyone know what hes talking about?
    • Knowledge
      Rosie Perez called Jay out in a article for XXL for calling women bitches while praising Nas. This is Jay's attempt at a defence, in the next line he calls Nas a hypocrite for the "You Owe Me" track.

    Honestly I liked French until this incident showed his true bitch colors. One of his fans get's killed but he don't got time to answer a few questions? He's a nut who don't deserve on penny from a fan. And WELCOME 2 PHILLY bullets is how we greet people around here. Realest city in America, and them shooters could of gave a fucc about a French Montana, around here we don't get star struck, we strike stars.

    Sometimes being more relevant is more important than having dump trucks full of money. Ross can walk into any restaurant and get a table without a reservation. 50 can't even cut in line at the bank anymore. BAWSE!!!!!!
    • Anonymous
      thats only because the restaurant owners know Rick Ross is gonna buy the everything on the fucking menu! That nigga got the NYPD standing guard outside his hotel while he stays in New York on some bitch nigga shit. where them shooters at? i thought he could put 1000 gangsters in any hood?
    • Rozay
      yet 50 had a restraining order on murda inc and had PROTECTION from the FEDS LMAO!!!!!!! stop with the double standards homie Bawse!!!!!!!!!!

      you really gonna bring up shit from 12 years ago that was proven not true? I'm talking this week Rick Ross has NYPD guarding his hotel after he called 50 Cent the police and mocked him for having security!
    • Rozay
      50 was a snitch, it was proven in court. theres clear evidence he snitched, remember Game's stop snitchin stop lyin?? Bawse!!!!!!!
    • ^
      50 never snitched. There was no evidence he did.
    • Anonymous
      ross was seen snitching to the police after he crashed his car into the building. he even hid his face behind a newspaper after talking to the cops because he knew it made him look like a punk

      too bad nobody outside of the internet CARES about 50, all you nerds need to support REAL HIPHOP and get a copy of Jesuspiece!! #GAME

      50 Cent is a good rapper, but let's ask the real question here: Is 50 Cent relevant in Hip-Hop anymore? As figure, mogul, and symbol, yes. As an artist and rapper, no. He's still widely known and remembered, but let's just be honest - his peak was in the past. How can you guys confidentially state that 50 Cent "is on top again" when his recent albums, songs, and features are barely getting talked about and listened to outside of the Internet??
    • Anonymous
      50 cent put out a new single and got more plays in less than 24 hours than Rick Ross latest single "Box Chevy" got in 3 weeks. If that isn't relevant I don't know who is.
    • Anonymous
      Like it or not 50 still has more people checking for his new music than Rick Ross, French Montana and Game despite his past albums and subpar efford.

    None of these fakes are safe. Mark my words, wayne is next.
