Local rapper shot at Waffle House in Buckhead

ATLANTA — Police are looking for suspects in connection with a shooting at a popular Buckhead restaurant.

Police said a man was shot at the Waffle House in the 3000 block of Piedmont Road just before 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Police told Channel 2 Action News that several men were eating at the restaurant when a local rapper named Yung Mazi walked in.


That is when the men who were eating at the restaurant shot at the victim, police said.

Yung Mazi was shot in the arm, according to police. The rapper was taken to Piedmont Hospital and is expected to fully recover.

Channel 2's Audrey Washington looked into the rapper's past and learned he is known for getting shot.

In a YouTube video, the rapper talks about the 10 other times he has been shot.

Yung Mazi tweeted Tuesday that, "God made me bulletproof."

The regional vice president of Waffle House, Vecus Miller, said no one else inside the restaurant was hurt during the shooting.

"We have added some additional security and police presence will be ramped up in this area," Miller said.

Miller reviewed surveillance video and said there was no argument beforehand and the gunfire seemed to come out of nowhere.

"It shows a lot of commotion. It was difficult to see all the things that happened," he said.

Miller said that violence will not be welcome at the establishment.

"This is a safe place for you to come eat with your family," he said.
