Rumor has it that DaBaby and 10 to 12 members of his entourage have been detained by police" to which the Miami Beach Police department later confirmed.

Multiple people surrounding the area made frantic calls to 911 and reported hearing rounds of gunshots. "I thought I heard like, it might have been a gun battle because it was like, 'boom, boom, boom, boom boom', just nonstop. Then it died out, and like five minutes later, again, 'boom, boom, boom, boom'" a South Beach resident described.

This is not the musician's first run in with the law. Back in 2019, he was was found guilty of "carrying a concealed gun" and sentenced to a year of probation following a fatal shooting at a Walmart in Huntersville, North Carolina but a judge claimed that the rap superstar "acted in self defense." Most recently he was arrested in January of this year for gun possession in Beverly Hills.

This unfortunate event comes as the 29-year-old star is riding high on a wave of success. The rapper was named the most-streamed rapper on Spotify per month, overtaking Drake. He also took home Top Rap Song for his Hot 100 topper "Rockstar" with Roddy Ricch at the Billboard Music Awards last week.
