When Rich the Kid put up a fight, three more men entered the home and began attacking the rapper as well.

A deputy from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department confirmed to Newsweek that "at approximately 3.30 p.m. on Santa Monica boulevard. three individuals were robbed and there were several shots fired".
