RAPPER Lil Tjay has reportedly been shot and is undergoing emergency surgery as police search for the shooter, according to reports.
The Run It Up rapper was allegedly shot just after midnight Wednesday in Edgewater, New Jersey, TMZ reports.
Sources revealed to the outlet that Lil Tjay is currently undergoing emergency surgery; however, the extent of his injuries is unknown.
According to TMZ, there were two shootings in the Edgewater area – one at a Chipotle restaurant and another at a nearby Exxon gas station.
The victim at the Chipotle was shot several times, while the other victim at the Exxon was only shot once, sources told the outlet.
It’s unclear at what location Lil Tjay was shot.
Police in Edgewater are actively searching for the suspect.
The Bergen County Prosecutors Office said the major crimes unit and Edgewater PD are investigating both shootings.
Lil Tjay rose to fame in 2018 following the release of his hit single Resume, which quickly gained the attention of Columbia Records – whom he signed with later that year.
The New York native has collaborated with several high-profile rappers, including Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Lil Durk, Tyga, Saweetie and Offset, among others.
