French Montana Sued for Negligence Over Shooting on Music Video Set

A man who said he was injured in the January incident is seeking damages

French Montana was sued today (March 20) for negligence over the shooting that occurred during the filming of a music video in Miami Gardens, Florida on January 5. At least 10 people were injured in the incident. The lawsuit from Carl Leon, who was present at the time of filming, alleges that French Montana neglected to ensure proper security, police detail, or overall safe operating practices.

Leon’s lawsuit alleges that he “suffered great bodily injury and damages far in excess of the jurisdictional limits of this court.” The lawsuit also names Coke Boys Records, the Licking restaurant where the shooting took place, and property owner Gayles Plaza. Leon is seeking damages in excess of $50,000 and a jury trial.

When reached by Pitchfork, Leon’s lawyer, Josiah D. Graham, offered no comment. Pitchfork has also reached out to representatives for French Montana.

When the shooting was reported, the Licking distanced themselves from the filming in a statement to CNN: “We were not aware of a video being filmed and found out last [minute] French Montana was shooting a scene in the back parking lot. We have no idea what actually took place. The Licking restaurant has nothing to do with the incident and has given police the necessary footage requested.”

French Montana offered this statement on social media at the time: “We unfortunately were at the wrong place, at the wrong time when an incident took place that left people hurt. Our thoughts & prayers are w/ the victims & families at this time.”
