Usher and Rich the Kid targeted in West Hollywood armed robbery

Usher and Rich the Kid targeted in West Hollywood armed robbery

One witness told the site that the man who fired at least ten shots was running from the scene and was firing shots behind him as he makes his way away from the studio.

The news outlet also claims that Usher was safe inside the studio when the attack happened, but that was not the case with Rich the Kid who was outside at the time!

TMZ report that "multiple shots were fired" with Usher - real name Usher Raymond IV - unhurt in the attack.

Furthermore, it is believed, as per TMZ, that 'the suspect or suspects made off with a ton of cash and jewelry'.

It remains unclear if anyone was hit when the suspect opened fire.

Just hours before the robbery, Rich posted an Instagram photo of himself holding stacks of cash while standing in front of a Lamborghini.

Authorities from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department surrounded the scene and nearby blocks searching for the culprit this afternoon while gathering evidence and eyewitness statements.

'Always in bank mo deposit, ' the caption reads.

Up-and-coming star Rich the Kid was outside the studio when the drama took place. They were reportedly carrying guns. Other famous musicians such as Quincy Jones, Billy Idol, Missy Elliot, Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Marilyn Manson have also recorded music at the location.
