A rap group was involved in a highway shootout early Friday morning that ended with one person in the hospital, according to The Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP said the Atlanta-based group “Migos” was set to perform at Cafe Iguana in Pembroke Pines Thursday night but didn’t go on stage and early Friday morning ended up at Jackson Memorial Hospital after a shooting on I-95.
“A dark vehicle pulled alongside and basically opened fire on them,” said Trooper Joe Sanchez with FHP.
FHP said some type of disagreement between the group and the management at the club stopped the performance.
“They stated that there was a small altercation between management and them and they were driving back to south beach to the hotel where they were staying,” said Trooper Sanchez.
Migos left the club and around 3:30 a.m. in a party van with eight people, including the groups entourage. They were traveling along I-95 near the 62nd Street Exit when a car pulled up next to the bus and opened fire, shooting at least a dozen rounds. Someone inside the van fired back.
“An exchange of gunfire because one of the passengers in that van was carrying his personal weapon and he returned fire,” said Sanchez.
One person in the van was shot in the leg and taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. No one else on was injured and no description of the other car involved has been released.
A representative with the group’s record label said none of the three band members was shot.
A manager at Cafe Iguana Pines said Migos was never scheduled to perform.
