Last night’s incident is the 2nd shooting to go down at one of Kandi restaurants in the past couple of years. Back in 2020, three people were shot inside her Old Lady Gang restaurant near Blaze.

A man stormed into the spot to shoot at another man in an act of revenge. He accidentally shot two innocent bystanders. All three people were rushed to the hospital and survived the attack.

As first reported, Blaze and Old Lady Gang have struggled to maintain passing health scores for years.

Back in July, Blaze finally received a B rating from the Georgia Department of Public Health after having been hit with a C score for several months.

In May 2021, the restaurant had to close down temporarily after it failed a health inspection. According to the report, obtained by, Kandi’s employees had mishandled food.

Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker fixed the issues and reopened days later.

The RHOA star has yet to speak out about the shooting that went down on Wednesday.
