A 26-year-old man allegedly climbed the fence surrounding the property and was shot, according to an incident report from the police department. No charges were filed in the shooting as of Thursday night.
“I can confirm the shooting did not occur inside the residence and that Mr. Kirk was on the property,” police chief Josh Watson told CNN in an email. Watson said the investigation is in “an ongoing status” and he was not able to provide further information.
Around 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, police arrived at the residence and found a man suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, TPD said in a statement.
The victim was transported by Iredell County EMS to a medical facility to treat his injury, the statement said.
A manager for the rapper declined to comment Thursday.
The eight-time Grammy-nominated rapper is a North Carolina native.
The town of Troutman is located around 35 miles north of Charlotte.
