MIDTOWN, Manhattan — Brooklyn rapper Tekashi69 was at business dinner in Midtown hours after he was sentenced to probation in a child sex performance case, when trouble ensued  involving his entourage and ended in a shooting.

The 22-year-old, also known as "6ix9ine" was allegedly meeting a business executive at Philippe Chow, a Chinese restaurant located on East 60th Street and Madison Avenue, shortly before 6 p.m., sources said.

The rapper, who showed up to the restaurant with his entourage, reportedly left the premises after a private security hired by the executive turned the group away.

After his entourage was denied entry, the rapper and the group left the restaurant, but a few of his friends returned shortly after, beefing about not being allowed in. Tekashi69 was not with them.

One of the friends then allegedly hit the security guard over the head with a chair.

The security guard, who was identified as a retired cop and licensed gun owner, then fired two shots, hitting one of the men in the torso.

The man sustained a minor injury and was transported to a hospital.

The security guard suffered a minor cut to his head.

The rapper posted an Instagram just hours after his sentencing with a photo of him in a suit with the caption: "GOD IS GOOD GOD IS... GOOD!"

Correction: Police originally said a rival group showed up to the restaurant.
