    Police are investigating a Wednesday shooting at a suburban Northfield home linked to Chicago rapper Chief Keef.

    Members of the Northfield Police Department and the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force continued to search for evidence Wednesday at a home on the 800 block of Happ Street.

    According to the Chicago Tribune, the home is rented by the the rapper's manager.

    Police are saying that a shooting did happen at the home early Wednesday, but it's not clear who was shot or who pulled the trigger.

    In a statement, a police spokesperson said the victim was in stable condition at Skokie Hospital, and that the shooting appears to be an isolated incident.

    It's not clear if Keef -- whose real name is Keith Cozart -- was at the home at the time or involved in the shooting.

    Earlier this week, Cozart posted pictures of himself posing with a gun on his Instagram feed.

    It's only the latest in a string of run-ins with the law for the young rapper.

    In May of last year he was arrested in Georgia for smoking marijuana in public.

    He was arrested eight days later for driving over 100 mph in a 55 mph zone.

    In October 2013, he spent 20 days in jail on a probation violation.

    Earlier this month, Cozart was arrested in Highland Park for driving under the influence of marijuana, driving on a suspended license and was cited for having no proof of insurance. The arrest came eight days after the rapper was released from rehab.

    Calls for comment to Cozart's attorney on the latest incident weren't immediately returned.
