Police: Person shot outside DaBaby’s home in North Carolina

TROUTMAN, NC (AP) – A person was shot and wounded outside rapper DaBaby’s home in North Carolina, authorities said Thursday, but it was unclear if he himself was involved or injured.

DaBaby and at least one other person were at the home when the shooting took place Wednesday night, Troutman Police Chief Josh Watson told the Associated Press. But he would not say who was shot, or who made the shooting, citing an ongoing investigation. He said the injuries to the unidentified injured person were not life-threatening.

A spokesman for the rapper did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.

Troutman, located in Iredell County, is 56 miles north of Charlotte.

The shooting is the latest in a series of incidents involving DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk. In 2019, he pleaded guilty to a charge of misdemeanor for carrying a concealed weapon after a fatal shooting at a Walmart in Huntersville, North Carolina, just south of Troutman. He was not charged with the shooting.

Last year, the Grammy-nominated rapper was arrested after taking a loaded gun into an upscale store on Rodeo Drive.
