The Charlotte rapper called 911 to say that he shot an intruder on Wednesday night.
Audio of the emergency call released via TMZ. “He’s trespassing on my property. … I don’t know what he’s here for, what he here to take, what he here to do, but he’s shot in his leg, he’s neutralized until you guys get here,” DaBaby says.
Officers found the victim at DaBaby's home, and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Police said the person who was shot is not from the area and was not a guest at the property.
