Rapper Schoolboy Q was reportedly inside of the vehicle involved in a shooting that injured three people outside of a concert on Thursday night. The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Colorado where Schoolboy, Nas, and Flying Lotus had just performed.
As Billboard reports, while the rapper was originally reported to have been detained in the ensuing investigation, it was revealed Friday that Schoolboy was inside of the car targeted in the shooting. However, a sheriff’s department spokesperson said they did not know if he was the principal target.
According to The Denver Post, no arrests have yet been made in connection to the incident. The three victims reportedly drove a white SUV into the city of Denver, where they stopped and police were summoned to the scene. All three were then taken to the Denver Health medical centre.
While no statement has been issued on the condition of the three victims, local police have confirmed that there were no fatalities in the shooting. Two other passengers were in the victims’ vehicle at the time of the incident and both are reportedly assisting police with their investigation.
The Red Rocks Ampitheatre, which is situated in Morrison, Colorado, was placed under lockdown following the shooting, as police searched all cars in the parking lot. The Denver Post reports that there were still many people on the scene almost two hours after the conclusion of the concert.
“We’re trying to figure out what happened,” said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer. According to Rolling Stone, an image of Schoolboy Q in handcuffs emerged on Twitter yesterday afternoon. The Man Of The Year rapper was reportedly only detained and not arrested.
