A hip-hop promoter was charged Monday with pistol whipping someone during an altercation that included a shooting involving hip-hop star Fetty Wap in his New Jersey hometown that left three people wounded, authorities said.

The shooting happened outside a 24-hour deli in Paterson at about 5 a.m. Sunday. The name of the victim was not released.

Authorities charged Raheem Thomas with assault and weapons offences after investigators said he struck a victim in the head and face with a gun he was not legally allowed to carry.

He was not charged in the shooting itself. The investigation is ongoing.
