“Our hearts are heavy and go out to the victims of this senseless act. We were not aware of a video being filmed and found out last min French Montana was shooting a scene in the back parking lot. We have no idea what actually took place. The Licking restaurant has nothing to do with the incident and has given police the necessary footage requested,” The Licking said in a statement, as per The Independent.
Miami Gardens police said that no arrests have been made as of now. The incident still remains under investigation and the cops are seeking more information.
