The shooting happened on Feb. 21 during a music video for rappers 42 Dugg and Roddy Ricch at a steelyard off Wells Street.

Neither of the artists was hurt, but two men were shot and taken to Grady Hospital. A third man was injured by debris.

Bond for Dade has been set for $60,000, according to the Fulton County Jail records. He must also be fitted with an ankle monitor and surrender his passport before he can be released on bond.


Channel 2′s Steve Gehlbach was the first reporter on the scene after the shooting happened.

A witness told Gehlbach there were suddenly a lot of gunshots shots that quickly scattered about 50 people on the set.

“Everyone started running, trying to get out. Or take cover, lot of places to take cover in there,” Teresa Lakes said.

Lakes was on the set as a medic to take temperatures and screen anyone who entered for COVID-19. She didn’t think she would be treating anyone for gunshots.

“Anyone that was injured, I laid hands on ‘em to make sure they were OK,” she said. “Just glad it wasn’t a lot worse then it could have been…could have been worse.”
