A shooting outside Yo Gotti‘s Prive restaurant in Memphis has reportedly left two people dead and several others injured.
According to the Memphis Police Department, shots rang out shortly after the restaurant closed its doors at 11 p.m. on Wednesday night (March 29).

In their statement, Memphis police explained that the shooting was a result of an altercation that took place inside the restaurant.

Two male victims have been pronounced dead — one of whom was found dead at the scene, and another who died from his injuries at a nearby hospital.

Five additional victims — four males and one female — were transported to hospital after being wounded in the shooting.

“On March 29, 2023 at 11:17 p.m. officers responded to a shooting outside 6980 Winchester,” the statement reads. “Two male victims were located. One was pronounced deceased on the scene and one was transported to [Regional One Health] critical where he was later pronounced deceased.”

It continues: “Five additional victims, four males and a female, arrived at area hospitals by [personally owned vehicles]. Prelim information indicates that the shooting stemmed from an altercation that started inside the club.”

Yo Gotti’s attorney, Arthur Horne, issued a statement to local Memphis news outlet WREG explaining that this is the first time an incident of this nature has happened at Prive.

Horne also pointed out that the shooting happened in the parking lot outside the restaurant.

“On behalf of Prive, they’ve been in business for 10 years, and nothing like this has ever happened at their establishment,” he said. “It happened out in the parking lot, and it ended up in a shootout.

“Nothing happened inside the restaurant. Despite any conflicting reports, they were closing, and this happened at the end of the evening in the parking lot.”

HipHopDX has reached out to Yo Gotti’s publicist for comment on the incident.

The fatal shooting comes just eight months after Memphis police thwarted a potential mass shooting at Yo Gotti’s Birthday Bash concert.

As Fox 13 Memphis reported at the time, a man threatened to kill numerous people at the concert after his girlfriend broke up with him.

Gotti took to Twitter to thank everyone involved in making sure the show went off safely without a hitch, including the Memphis Police Department.

“Thank you to the fans, artists and everyone involved behind the scenes for making Birthday Bash a smooth, secure and successful event,” the CMG mogul tweeted. “We were informed of a potential threat regarding an individual seeking to harm attendees leaving Birthday Bash that occurred 3 hours after our show ended.

“I would also like to thank the Memphis Police Department for their swift and proactive action in ensuring that all attendees returned home safely.”
