Reports surfaced of music veteran Chaka Zulu shot in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood Sunday night, June 26. Unfortunately, an incident report, officers responded to a call that multiple people were shot at 2293 Peachtree Road around 11:35 p.m.

According to reports he is the ICU at an Atlanta hospital. The music exec shot three times near APT 4B, a restaurant and bar where Zulu hosted weekly events.
Sources spotted the 41-year-old walking a few women from the bar to their car. But then he allegedly got into it with a few guys the women knew. Officers found three male victims with gunshot wounds. One believed to be one of the shooters, also later pronounced dead.
A suspect is reportedly already in custody although details on Zulu’s status are scarce at the moment.
