Ten people were injured following a shooting that witnesses say happened during a music video shoot for rapper French Montana.

Shots rang out just before 8 p.m. Thursday outside of a Miami Gardens restaurant. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and police responded to the scene and found multiple people injured.

Witnesses said the chaos unfolded as French Montana was filming a music video, according to NBC Miami. Footage showed the rapper sitting in a car outside The Licking restaurant before shots were fired. His representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Police told the news station that it is believed that an altercation occurred at a different restaurant and moved to The Licking. They said they had not confirmed that the shooting happened during the filming of French Montana's video.

Four of the victims self-transported to local hospitals, the fire department said. Authorities transported six others to trauma centers either by ambulance or air rescue.
