Former Washington Wizards player Glen Rice Jr., son of pro basketball legend Glen Rice, was shot in a parking lot near T.I.’s Atlanta restaurant, Scales 925, following an altercation unrelated to the rapper or the establishment. Management for Scales 925, which is located at 30 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd in Atlanta, released a statement regarding the incident that occurred on Oct. 25, 2015.

“The events that happened near Scales 925 is severely disconcerting. Our staff noticed a heightened exchange between patrons and they were asked to leave. An altercation between the individuals of no affiliation with Scales 925 seemed to have led to an unfortunate escalation in a public area near our restaurant. We commend our team on the swift and professional handling of the incident and on ensuring that the safety and well being of our patrons and staff remain a priority. We were saddened to learn about Mr. Rice’s injury and wish him the absolute best with his personal injury and situation. The Scales 925 family condemns any act of violence and will always adhere to best practices to safeguard our patrons and staff. We encourage the public and media to continue to responsibly get any additional facts on this unfortunate incident from the authorities, as we plan to do the same.”

T.I. was reportedly not at the club during the incident.

Rice was involved in a club shooting in Atlanta in 2012. The incident, in which he says he “accidentally” fired his 9mm, resulted in him being terminated from the Georgia Tech basketball team.
