American rapper, Saucy Santana was one of three victims hospitalized following a shooting on Wednesday, December 11.
According to Complex, the shooting took place near the entrance ramp to I-95 from Miami Gardens Drive at around 4 a.m. ET.
Police officials say a Honda sedan carrying the Florida rapper and two other passengers was approached by a Chevy sedan that opened fire on the vehicle. All three passengers were struck by bullets.
They were taken to Aventura Hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries to their arms and hands. Saucy Sanatana was reportedly targeted for being a gay artist.
“I’m lucky, blessed to be alive,” Santana told NBC 6 Wednesday. “I got shot in the top of my shoulder, you was aiming at my face or at my head, that’s an instant kill.”
“It happened out of nowhere, so we could have been ran off the road, anything. We could have been dead,” Santana said. “You have people that have their own motives, and everybody isn’t going to be accepting of the type of artist that I am.”
