Ludacris’ longtime manager Chaka Zulu was shot Sunday night, June 26, in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, local news station 11 Alive reports.

Zulu, a music industry veteran, was one of three people shot around 11:35 p.m. last night. All three were transported to the hospital, where one was pronounced dead.

Zulu is reportedly in stable condition according to a reporter for another local news outlet, WSBTV, who received a text from former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed: “We are fortunate to report that Chaka Zulu is in stable condition and recovering. The family thanks everyone for their well wishes and prayers, and asks for their privacy at this time,” the text read.

Per the Atlanta Police, the shooting reportedly occurred after an argument broke out in the parking lot behind a shopping center. Police do not yet have a suspect in custody and their investigation into the shooting “remains active and ongoing at this time.”

Along with managing Ludacris, Zulu helped the rapper launch his own label, Disturbing tha Peace, which is an imprint of Def Jam. In 2019, Zulu joined Spotify as the Head of Artist and Talent Relations.
