Rapper 2 Chainz robbed at gunpoint in San Fran

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police say platinum-selling rapper 2 Chainz was robbed in San Francisco just hours before he was scheduled to perform at a concert.

Sgt. Dennis Toomer says the hip-hop star, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was walking with five members of his entourage near downtown Sunday afternoon. They were approached by three men, 1 of them holding a handgun.

Toomer says one shot was fired as the rapper had his cellphone and wallet with credit cards and cash inside stolen.

Police say the suspected shooter apparently got away in a gray sedan.

The Atlanta-based rapper was in the Bay Area to perform at KMEL-FM's annual Summer Jam concert Sunday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.
