French Montana’s tour bus was the scene of a deadly drive-by shooting late last night.

French, who had just finished a show at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, was not hurt in the incident but one fan was killed and another injured. Officers don’t believe the Morrocan rapper nor his entourage were targets of the shooting, but both are cooperating with the police.

“When the bus pulled over around midnight on Christopher Columbus Boulevard near Race Street, outside the Holiday Inn Express where the group had rooms reserved, police said a crowd formed outside the bus. A car then pulled up and opened fire on the crowd, hitting a 27-year-old man in the abdomen and a 29-year-old man in the shoulder, according to Chief Inspector Scott Small.

“Police took the 27-year-old to Hahnemann University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:30 a.m. The other victim arrived at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in a private vehicle and was listed in stable condition, police said.”
