THIS is the terrifying moment a "gunman" fires shots from a balcony while rapping to Tupac on Instagram.
Armed cops raced to the high-rise flat in Chatham, Kent, this morning as the man filmed himself wielding guns and yelling "call the police".
He shouted along to Tupac's "Hit Em Up" as he showed his cache of "weapons" to the camera in a string of bizarre Instagram videos.
The "gunman" repeatedly moves back and forward towards the edge of the balcony singing along to music, referencing the Notorious B.I.G and firing off several shots each time.
The man, who calls himself "flexingmike" and claims to be the CEO of Truth or Dare records, fires the shots at random.
Wearing a bright Hawaiian-style shirt and headphones, he raps and sneers at the camera while waving the firearms around.
The camera pans around his penthouse apartment – showing at least four guns and ammo on the bed – before he fires "bullets" into the air.
In another video, now deleted, gasps can be heard from below, with one person filming saying: "Oh my God, he's shooting".
A spokesman for Kent Police said: "Kent Police was called at 8.35am on Wednesday 22 April 2020 to a disturbance at a flat on Dock Head Road, Chatham.
"Members of the public reported seeing a man on a balcony with weapons and patrols, including armed officers, attended the scene.
I think they are going to move in. The police are moving in. They are going in.
"The police helicopter was also deployed and a man in 30s has now been arrested on suspicion of firearms offences.
"Patrols remain at the scene where officers have located four suspected imitation firearms as part of their enquiries."
With 57k Instagram followers, he appears to style himself as an "influencer" – regularly posting pics from exotic holidays, designer clothes and on superyachts.
In one snap of himself at a gym, he posted: "Make it happen. Shock everyone."
Earlier this week he advertised his new EP on Instagram, featuring five songs. His social media then fell silent until this morning's rampage.
One resident who lives in the same flat as the incident took place said the shots came from the penthouse balcony.
He said: "The guy is on top of the penthouse with a machine gun, and a rifle and a pistol.
"There is a helicopter now with eyes on him, and the police have got him as well.
"It's crazy. I think they are going to move in. The police are moving in. They are going in.
"He's shooting. The police are coming out of the trees."
Cops surrounded the Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre, near to the flat where the man was spotted.
A police helicopter was deployed and hovered over the area after panicked shoppers ran back inside the complex.
Police found four suspected imitation firearms.
Video circulating on social media shows a witness pointing out a man on a balcony.
He says: "He's up there. He's up there sitting on that yellow thing with a machine gun, a handgun and a rifle."
A neighbour who lives close to the mall told Kent Online: "There was a lot of banging just over an hour ago, I just assumed it was construction workers.
"There was armed police outside The Range who waved everyone back, they moved towards the noise.
"Staff at The Range have been trying to catch everyone and get them into the shop.
"Someone across the way shouted about someone having a gun. There's a police helicopter flying above."
