Word made its way across the Internet yesterday: Atlanta DJ and trap and bass music fixture HPNTK (Chris Tanner) took a stray bullet outside of Connect Lounge on May 15. Details are still coming together, but at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday night, an argument broke out near the entrance to the Auburn Ave. club, which erupted in gunfire. Tanner was shot in the back and a bullet settled near his lung.

According to friend and Freakbeat blogger Adrian Sosebee (Zone3), Tanner is currently being treated at Grady Memorial Hospital. He is expected to recover, although he's in a lot of pain, and the price tag for his stay at Grady is skyrocketing. Being that he's a musician without health insurance he's going to have to pay for his medical expenses out-of-pocket. Stay tuned for more information regarding benefits et al.

In the meantime, read more about the incident at Do Androids Dance?, which already includes a link to donate money toward paying Tanner's medical expenses.
