The BET Hip Hop Awards were filmed on Saturday in Atlanta. According to reports, shots were fired outside the taping of the show when a shoving incident occurred backstage between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy. The men went at each other in a heated exchange until bodyguards and BET security could separate them.

The incident did not end there though as one of Ross’ entourage went to the parking lot for the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, drew a gun, and then fired multiple shots. According to police reports, shots were not even fired. Also, no injuries were reported.
