Sunny Isles Beach, FL – NBA YoungBoy was in Miami over Mother’s Day weekend where he was scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud Miami Festival. But, he got more than he bargained for after he reportedly found himself on the other end of a gun on Sunday (May 12).
According to Local10, one person was killed and at least one other person was injured after a shooting near Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach.
Witnesses at the scene told the news outlet gunfire erupted around 1:30 p.m. local time after two groups of rappers allegedly got into a heated argument. Both groups reportedly exchanged gunfire. Local police, however, won’t confirm that was actually the catalyst for the incident.
Miami-Dade police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said four people were detained after a silver GMC Yukon seen leaving Sunny Isles Beach was discovered attempting to enter the Hard Rock Stadium parking lot in Miami Gardens, where the Rolling Loud music festival was being held.
A friend of the man who was killed — later identified as 43-year-old Mohamad Jradi — told police Jradi was simply caught in the crossfire when bullets started flying.
Shooting survivor, Kaylyn Long, was taken to Aventura Hospital, although her condition wasn’t disclosed. Witnesses identified Long as NBA YoungBoy’s girlfriend.
A 5-year-old boy was also “grazed” by a bullet but was able to be treated at the scene by paramedics.

Zabaleta also revealed several firearms were confiscated from Trump International Beach Resort.
“We are deeply saddened by the incident that took place in our community yesterday and are grateful for the swift action of local law enforcement and first responders,” a statement released from the resort said. “As the investigation is ongoing, we are unable to comment further at this time.”
Aventura police added they were investigating a second shooting that’s possibly linked to the Trump International Beach Resort incident.
Maj. Michael Bentolila said a driver was shot, noting his injuries weren’t life-threatening.
“We are working with investigators to see if they are related,” he said. “Neither indicates a hate crime or terrorist event.”
Needless to say, NBA YoungBoy didn’t make his scheduled performance.
