Rapper Sexyy Red has spoken out about a fatal shooting near the set of her music video set in Florida.

According to reports, a suspect opened fire near the filming of the music video killing one person and wounding another. They then fled the scene.

TMZ reported that the “Pound Town” rapper “was filming the music video with a bunch of extras at Oakland Park Flea Market in the afternoon when somebody pulled a gun nearby and started firing.”

Two people were allegedly arrested in connection with the shooting.

“One of the victims was found at the gas station and the other at the flea market. Broward Sheriff’s deputies spent several hours investigating, focusing their activity on a Chevron gas station while also taping off several businesses,” law enforcement said in a statement.

After the incident, the rapper hopped on social media to address the shooting.

“I send my condolences to the family of the man who lost his life and prayers up for the person who was wounded. But i gotta address the rumors that it happened at my video shoot bc shit is not true, at all. To be clear it happened at a gas station across the street from my video set. Florida Highway Patrol and Broward County Sheriff confirmed that the shooting wasn’t on my set. [I’m] secure and thanks to my production team getting all the paperwork right and working with the Broward Sheriff’s Office to hire off-duty’s to make sure everyone was safe. We finished the shoot at a different location and everyone from our set went home safely. Period. I’m just trying to work hard, make good music, connect with my fans. Please don’t try to twist narratives and put this on a bitch.”
