Three individuals opened fire during Waka Flocka Flame recording session at an Atlanta studio in the early hours of April 4, leaving one person injured.

According to a police report obtained, the rapper, whose real name is Juaquin James Malphurs, was among the many witnesses who told about the shooting.

The witnesses claimed the suspects, who have not been identified yet, fired off several shots with weapons into the studio, resulting in one man, namely Timothy Nickson, being hit in the arm.

Officers arrived at the scene at approx. 2:09 a.m. ET on April 4, cleared out the scene and transported the victim to Grady Memorial Hospital. The condition of the victim is not available right now.

Details about the Northwest Atlanta shooting began to emerge when WSB-TV reported it Friday afternoon (April 12), nearly one week after the incident unfolded.

The two men who were found holding guns at the scene were drawn after police arrived. They were said to be protecting the studio. They were initially detained and later released.

The shooting came just four days after rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of his clothing store, Marathon Clothing, in South Central Los Angeles.

A memorial service in his honor was set at LA's Staples Center on Thursday. During the funeral procession for Hussle at 103 Street and Main Street, suspects opened fire leaving one person killed.
