MIAMI (AP) - The rapper known as Saucy Santana says he was one of three people shot and wounded during a drive-by shooting near Miami.

Florida Highway Patrol says the shooting occurred around 4 a.m. Wednesday near the entrance ramp to Interstate 95 from Miami Gardens Drive.

A white Chevy sedan pulled up alongside the Honda that Santana and his friends were riding in and began shooting.

Santana and his friends had just left a strip club. Santana is openly gay.

He told NBC 6 in Miami that he might have been targeted because of the kind of artist he is.

No arrests were immediately reported.
