Schoolboy Q And Entourage Sprayed With Gunfire After Denver Performance, Shooting Victims Handcuffed By Police
So they were shot at and the police cuffed THEM? SMH.
Unknown Shooter Fires On SUV Carrying Schoolboy Q And Entourage
A gunman with a rifle fired on an SUV carrying rapper ScHoolboy Q after a concert at the popular Red Rocks outdoor amphitheater near Denver, but he wasn’t hurt, investigators said Friday.
Three other people suffered non-life threatening injuries during the attack late Thursday in a parking lot at Red Rocks.
Investigators have not released a possible motive for the shooting and said they do not know if ScHoolboy Q was targeted. No arrests have been made.
“It just happened 12 hours ago. We have a lot to learn,” said Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.
ScHoolboy Q, whose birth name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, is from Los Angeles. His most recent album, “Oxymoron,” debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member.
He and Kendrick Lamar, who was nominated for seven Grammys this year, are members of Black Hippy.
ScHoolboy Q said on Twitter Friday that he was OK.
Ray Alba, a representative for ScHoolboy Q, didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
The rapper and at least four other people were in a white SUV that was fired on at the venue in the foothills west of Denver, authorities said.
They drove themselves to a Denver intersection about 15 miles away, apparently in search of a hospital, before being stopped by Denver police and taken for medical attention, Kelley said.
ScHoolboy Q and another uninjured person were briefly handcuffed while police assessed the situation, but no one in the vehicle was arrested.
Nas and Flying Lotus also performed at the concert that benefited three groups, including the Gang Rescue and Support Project of Denver.
Thankfully no one was seriously hurt or worse! And at least he seems to still be in good spirits. But who is shooting at Q? Does TDE or Schoolboy himself have some beef we’re unaware of? We’ll keep a watch on this story…
