Rapper Rich the Kid and his entourage were reportedly the victims of a robbery outside of a Los Angeles recording studio.

The musician, whose legal name is Dmitri Roger, and his entourage were attacked on Tuesday near the Westlake Recording Studio in West Hollywood.

The news was first reported by website TMZ. Eyewitnesses told the outlet multiple shots were fired during the assault. Footage showed the rapper talking to paramedics at the scene following the attack, KABC added.

A spokeswoman for the LA county sheriff’s department confirmed there was an incident at the 7200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, where the studio is located, but couldn’t confirm the involvement of the rapper.

The spokeswoman added she was not aware of any injuries and not aware of anyone being transported to the hospital.

The West Hollywood sheriff station later confirmed a robbery occurred on the block and said the victims were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

“When deputies arrived at the location they found three male black assault victims,” the station said in a statement. The victims stated “three male black suspects confronted them in the alley behind a business and demanded their money and jewellery. The victims were then physically assaulted by the suspects.”

“As the suspects drove away, a shooting occurred by an unknown male suspect”, the statement continued. “The shooting suspect has not been located or identified.”

Westlake Recording Studio did not respond to a request for comment.

A spokesperson for Rich the Kid said “Rich is ok”, but declined to add further details.

Earlier on Tuesday, Rich the Kid posted for an Instagram photo holding what appeared to be several stacks of cash.
