Injured hip hop artist Lil Tjay was taken to a New Jersey hospital with gunshot wounds early Wednesday, according to several sources.
TMZ reports that the “Leaked” rapper, 21, underwent emergency surgery and is recuperating.
In a news statement, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office (BCPO) stated that officers from the Edgewater Police Department were dispatched at 12:08 a.m. to The Promenade, Edgewater, where they located a 22-year-old victim with gunshot wounds.
Released information stated that both victims, aged 22 and 24, were taken to the hospital for treatment after being found with a single gunshot wound at an Exxon petrol station within walking distance of each other.
Both hospitalized patients were subsequently improved to good condition with non-life-threatening injuries, the BCPO reported. One victim had been upgraded from critical to a stable condition.

Lil Tjay was identified by TMZ and WABC as one of the victims, but no one else was named by the authorities (whose real name is Tione Merritt). No one knows why the two victims were described as being 22 years old, or if Tjay is the victim who is in good health.
The shooting “does not appear to be [a] random act,” the BCPO said on Twitter, following an initial investigation by the BCPO and the Edgewater Police Department.
Tjay’s representatives did not reply to a request for comment right away. PEOPLE were referred to the BCPO by the Edgewater Police Department, who said that the victims’ names were not known.
True 2 Myself, Tjay’s debut studio album on Columbia Records, was published in 2019 after he came to stardom on SoundCloud by releasing his own songs.
More than 523 million people have listened to “F.N.” on Spotify, and he has more than 7 million Instagram followers. This year’s Rolling Loud music festival in Queens, New York, scheduled for September 23-25, will also have Tjay as a musician.
PRAY FOR TJAY 🙏.
