Someone was shot at Charlotte rapper DaBaby’s home on Wednesday night, Troutman Police said.
Around 7:45 p.m., Troutman Police officers went to the home on Stillwater Road after receiving a call about a shooting. When officers arrived, they found a person with a gunshot wound that was not life-threatening to their “lower extremities,” Troutman Police Chief Josh Watson told The Charlotte Observer.
The injured person was taken to a hospital by Iredell County EMS, police said in a news release and post on the agency’s Facebook page.
The shooting was an isolated incident and there isn’t a threat to the community, Troutman Police said.
Police did not identify the injured person or the shooter.
DaBaby was inside the home at the time of the shooting, Watson said. The person was shot on the football field outside of the home, WSOC reported.
The Charlotte Ledger in 2020 reported the Troutman “compound” belonged to DaBaby, who’s real name is Jonathan Kirk. Iredell County property records list a person named Linda Matthews as the owner of the home.
