Original story 9:34 a.m.: Rapper 2 Chainz was reportedly shot at and robbed yesterday afternoon in broad daylight outside a marijuana dispensary, according to multiple news reports.

The HuffPo reports that the Atlanta rapper was outside at about 4:30 p.m. when shots were fired. Police showed up at the scene, where 2 Chainz "wasn't cooperative," saying he wanted to handle it himself, according to TMZ.

Surveillance video shows that the rapper was the intended target, and that his entourage "ran away from the incident like 'cockroaches running from a flashlight.'"
