Key Facts

NBC News reports Kodak Black, 24, was transported to an area hospital where he is expected to recover from his injuries, according to four anonymous law enforcement sources.

An LAPD spokesperson told Forbes officers responded to a report of a physical altercation where shots were fired around 2:45 a.m. in the 400 block of N. La Cienega Boulevard.

Four people were struck by gunfire between the ages of 19 and 60, according to the LAPD, and two victims were transported to area hospitals by the Los Angeles Fire Department, while two others were taken via private vehicles.

CBS Los Angeles reports witnesses said they heard fighting outside of a restaurant near the Pacific Design Center, where Bieber had performed a concert earlier.

All four victims are in stable condition and no arrests have been made, according to the LAPD.

Representatives for Black did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Forbes.

Surprising Fact
Former President Donald Trump pardoned Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, in 2021. He was serving a 46-month federal sentence after admitting he falsified information on federal forms to buy four firearms in 2019.

Key Background
The Florida rapper is known for his collaborations with artists like Travis Scott, Offset and XXXTentacion. His latest single, “Super Gremlin,” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart and cracked the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 last month.
