Newly revealed footage shows the moment rapper Blueface allegedly pulled out a gun in Las Vegas and fired on a truck driver who had been in a fight with the musician’s crew earlier in the night.
The 25-year-old, real name Johnathan Jamall Porter, was arrested on Tuesday outside of Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles in an apparent undercover operation.
A black and white video obtained by TMZ, seemingly from a security camera, shows Blueface walking outside of a club and crossing the street on October 8.
A truck then drives up next to him and the driver reportedly asked who was responsible for hitting him during an attack earlier in the evening.
The video then seems to show the rapper pulling out a gun and firing several shots at the driver of the truck, who sped away from the scene.

Eyewitnesses who saw Blueface arrested on Tuesday said six to eight officers in unmarked vehicles were present.
He faces serious charges for the incident including attempted murder with the use of a deadly firearm, and discharging a gun into a house, building, vehicle or craft, both of which are felonies.
Video showed him dressed in a brown tracksuit and being handcuffed on the floor before he was helped to his feet and led away to custody.
The rapper’s girlfriend Chrisean Rock, 22, was with Blueface when he was arrested.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released the following statement: ‘On November 15, 2022 at approximately 2:40 pm, LVMPD detectives arrested 25-year-old Johnathan Porter on charges stemming from a shooting that took place on October 8, 2022 in the 6300 blocks of Windy Road.’
Blueface was shown just hours before his arrest with his girlfriend, real name Chrisean Malone, in video she posted on social media for her nearly 2.5 million followers.
They enjoyed light-hearted conversation together in the video and kissed while walking in a hotel hallway.
‘Dis was 3 hours before they took u from me Jesus Got us NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER IM YO ROCK FORever!!!,’ Chrisean wrote in the caption.
She earlier tweeted ‘ugh why gotta take you from me’ along with broken heart emojis and multiple crying face emojis.

Chrisean later posted a video on her Instagram Stories declaring that she would be standing behind Blueface.
In an update for her fans, Chrisean scolded commenters for telling her to leave the rapper while wearing a Blueface necklace.
She noted that Blueface didn’t leave her when she ‘went in’, apparently referencing her arrest in August after an altercation at an Arizona bar.
Chrisean in the clip said they were going to court on Wednesday and that Blueface was coming home.
She added that nobody should be surprised if she gets another chain with his face and ended with a defiant middle finger.
Blueface scored his most successful single with a remix of his song Thotiana featuring Cardi B and YG that peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Blueface was born in Los Angeles and played football for Arleta High School in the San Fernando Valley area.
He started rapping in January 2017 under the stage name Blueface Bleedem, a reference to his ties to the School Yard Crips street gang.
Blueface previously was arrested in November 2018 in California and charged with shooting at an occupied vehicle after he fired at a gas station robber. He also was arrested in February 2019 for felony gun possession after law enforcement recovered a loaded, unregistered handgun in his possession.
