Fetty Wap Involved In A Shootout In Paterson, NJ



New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap was reportedly involved in an early morning altercation in his hometown of Paterson, New Jersey, that subsequently led to gunfire outside of a 24-hour deli in the Southern region of the city.


The incident occurred around 5 a.m. Sunday morning, about 10 minutes before officials were called to the scene on reports of shots fired. Although the “Trap Queen” rapper, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, was not injured in the incident, officials say that Maxwell and his friends were present at the time of the shooting. However, neither Maxwell or his friends are suspects in the shooting or in a robbery that reportedly occurred at the same time, Daily News reports. Supposedly, Fetty Wap’s ‘1738’ chain was also taken during the altercation. 


As a result of the altercation, two people were injured and transported to local hospitals for treatment. One of the injured men, who officials found at the scene, was a 34-year-old man with a shot to the leg. Another man, who was found several blocks away from the scene, was a 37-year-old man with a shot to the torso. A third man with a gunshot wound was transported to the trauma center at Hackensack University Medical Center at the time of the incident, however, officials are still trying to figure out if he was a victim of the same incident.  


According to reports, police have yet to reveal the current conditions of the victims, but they’ve confirmed that none have sustained life-threatening injuries. Also as of last night, they have not made any arrest in connection to the Sunday morning shooting.
