Quando Rondo is safe after the Georgia artist was caught in the middle of a shooting in Los Angeles on Friday.

TMZ reports several gunmen drove to a gas station in West Hollywood and opened fire, killing one person. The victim was rushed to a local hospital, where he died. The suspects fled in a white sedan.

Rondo and his friends fled the scene and were stopped by law enforcement for questioning. Footage of Quando’s interaction with police has since circulated around social media.

A rep for the rapper told TMZ, “Quando was present during a shooting yesterday evening which resulted in the untimely death of another young man’s life. He himself didn’t sustain any injuries during the shooting and is safe. We ask that his privacy is respected at this time.”

The news arrives nearly two years after Rondo’s friend, Timothy “Lul Tim” Leeks, allegedly murdered King Von in November 2020. 

The deadly incident occurred on Nov. 6 outside an Atlanta nightclub, where an altercation between two groups quickly escalated into gunfire. Von was among those who sustained gunshot wounds and was immediately transferred to a hospital. He was pronounced dead shortly after.

During an interview with All Around TV last summer, Rondo revealed club promoters don’t want to book him after the incident. 

“Nobody want to book me because they’re terrified,” Rondo said. “That’s the truth. So many people calling like, I wish the fans let that shit go. As long as y’all talk about it. They’re hyping this shit up.”

He also addressed the death threats he’s faced because of his connection to the death of Von. 

“However some shit come to me, that’s how I’m about to go about that shit,” Rondo said. “Death threat all you want to, bro, fuck that shit, that’s just some words, my n***a. Go do an action.”
