According to TMZ, two hooded men opened fire Thursday night on the mansion where 6ix9ine, Kanye West, and Nikki Minaj were slated to shoot a video. In surveillance footage obtained by TMZ, one man says “We got 30 seconds,” and the other responds “Okay,” right before they open fire on the house.

TMZ is also reporting the room that took the brunt of the gunfire was slated to be Minaj’s dressing room and that at least one bullet shattered a window, though Minaj hadn’t arrived yet.

My reaction to these people is...
