The highly popular rap group Migos was involved in a very serious shootout early Thursday morning, March 28th, after shots were fired at their party bus around 3:30 a.m. They were scheduled to perform at the Cafe Iguana in Pembroke Pines, FL, but a dispute of some sort occurred between the group and the club’s management which prevented them from performing as planned.
Thee group wound up making an exit from Cafe Iguana around 3:30 a.m. and entered a party bus along with five members of their entourage, to make for eight passengers in total. While travelling down I-95 close to the 62nd Street Exit, a car pulled up next to their party bus and opened fire with a barrage of lethal bullets. The scene was reminiscent of an old school Wild West movie, as one of the individuals on the Migos party bus just so happened to have a gun in his/her possession and fired back at the assailants. According to Florida Highway Patrol’s Lt. Joe Sanchez, a minimum of 12 shots were unleashed between both parties.
One of the individuals present on the Migos party bus was struck with a bullet in the leg and had to be taken to the Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment, though it has not been confirmed if it was one of the three official members of the group who was shot. Aside from the one casualty, no other injuries have been reported and authorities have yet to release any official statement regarding specific details about the assailants.
