An Atlanta hotel clerk was shot early Wednesday by a man who demanded to see rapper 21 Savage, police said.

A witness said the shooter, whose name was not released, checked into the Hilton hotel in downtown Atlanta, then returned to the lobby and began firing briefly after asking to see the hip hop star, who is known for songs such as “X” and “Bank Account.”

The hotel clerk is expected to survive, according to WCGL. A 29-year-old man from Virginia was arrested in connection with the shooting, Atlanta police said.

The alleged gunman fired five shots during the incident, cops said.

The hip hop star, who was born in London, spent much of his childhood in Atlanta.
