The incident reportedly occurred on Wednesday evening when the 24-year-old artist was approached by three women and a man hoping to snap a picture at the Food 4 Less store in San Fernando Valley, Calif., TMZ reported. TMZ was told that the singer told them he wasn’t feeling well, most likely due to the liver disease he’s battling, but the fans didn’t care. An employee saw it happening and called cops.
Sources say when August left the store, the group followed him. August then proceeded to his car, where he grabbed a gun, put in his waistband and showed the butt of the gun as the group approached.
Cops at the scene established that Alsina never made a verbal threat during the confrontation, according to TMZ. A source familiar with the situation told the celebrity gossip site that the incident probably won’t lead to charges.
