Surveillance video shows the suspects getting out of a gray Acura. Shots were fired and those suspects are then seen getting back into the car with the jewelry.

As the suspects tried to flee, a chase with the two rappers ended in a crash between the two cars.

One of the rappers, Danny Punto Rojo, was shot in the shoulder. His brother and fellow rapper Toxic Crow was also in a black SUV with him during the chase.

Police tell News 12 that the nature of the dispute is still unclear and there are no identified suspects at this time.

Both rappers were scheduled to perform in New Jersey Friday night.
