Lamar Odomwas present at a Hooters in Queens, New York, where gunshots were fired following an altercation, Us Weekly can confirm.

Friends of Odom, 38, got into a verbal argument with a group of people as they left the chain restaurant in the early hours of Friday, June 20. A male that was not part of the former NBA star’s group of friends was the one to allegedly fire multiple shots into the air, according to TMZ.

The PIO also confirmed to Us that Odom was not injured following the incident.

Odom confirmed on Tuesday that he was “not involved” in the shooting.

News of the former Lakers star’s presence at the Hooters altercation comes the same month that Odom revealed he was planning to move to China.
