Gunshots were fired midway through the filming of a music video featuring the rappers Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Tekashi 6ix9ine.

TMZ and The Blast report that at least eight shots were fired at an $80 million Beverly Hills mansion rented by Tekashi for a music video.

Police responded to a "shots fired" phone call. Both publications say the attack appeared to be a drive-by.

A video of men shooting at a house has emerged online, as has a picture of a bedroom window with a bullet hole going through it.

West and 6ix9ine were reportedly on set. Both were uninjured and West was evacuated immediately after the incident. Minaj was not on set at the time as was still in transit to the location.

Sources told The Blast that no-one was hurt during the attack and that police are still searching for a suspect. Whether they will return to film the music video remains unknown.

Minaj and 6ix9ine have collaborated before on the song “FEFE,” which peaked at number three on Billboard's Hot 100 charts.

Earlier this year, moments after filming the music video for "FEFE," 6ix9ine was reportedly kidnapped, pistol-whipped and robbed.
