Rapper DaBaby released, two in custody following shooting in upscale Miami area

RapperDaBaby has been interviewed and released following a shooting in Miami during the late hours of Monday night that left two people injured, according to authorities.

Per TMZ, police in Miami spoke with DaBaby, 29 – real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk – as part of their investigation into the incident which happened just before midnight local time in a high-traffic area on the 100 block of Ocean Drive near the famed Prime 112 Steakhouse.

In a statement to the outlet, the rapper’s attorney, Drew Findling, said: “Mr. Kirk has been released by the police. No criminal charges have been filed against him.”

Miami Beach police maintain that a number of people were initially detained for questioning, including Kirk and detectives have “two subjects in custody who are responsible for Monday evening’s shooting near 1 Street and Ocean Drive.”.

According to authorities, Miami Beach Fire Rescue transported two individuals to a local area hospital with one patient suffering a “shoulder wound” and “the other a leg wound.”
