As previously reported, a triple shooting took place last week at a concert headlining Nas & Schoolboy Q.  Neither rapper was harmed, but three concert goers were.  The incident took place in the parking lot of the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado last Thursday night.

Reportedly shots were fired into a SUV resulting in three of its occupants being injured and somehow the victims managed to drive into Denver where they were stopped by police. The victims were taken to Denver Health Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. One victim has already been released.

After the shooting, Schoolboy Q and another person was briefly detained for questioning, but no one in his entourage was arrested.  It’s still unclear what, if anything the rapper had to do with the shooting or he was possibly a target himself.  As an investigation continues, authorities revealed they believe the incident was not a random act.  Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jacki Kelley stated,

“This is not just a coincidence. We think there is probably more to it than that.  It does seem to be more targeted than random.”

Finally, over the weekend it was reported Rick Ross was blocked from performing at HOT 107.5′s Summer Jamz at Chene Park Amphitheater in Detroit.

Shahida Mausi, president and CEO of Right Productions, which manages and operates Chene Park released a statement on the incident saying:

“Reports from our venue operations and security teams indicate as a result of between 100-150 individuals lead by a local rapper, prevented and threatened to harm Ross if he entered the grounds to perform at Chene Park Amphitheater. The band of individuals orchestrated a human blockade around the service entrance to the venue – preventing Mr. Ross and his entourage from entering the premises.  A decision was made from Mr. Ross’ team the conditions were becoming threatening and posed a security risk. 

This incident greatly saddens me and our entire team at The Right Productions who work so diligent to host and produce outstanding entertainment performances at Chene Park. Reports from our venue operations and security teams indicate as a result of between 100-150 individuals lead by a local rapper, prevented and threatened to harm Ross if he entered the grounds to perform at Chene Park Amphitheater. The band of individuals orchestrated a human blockade around the service entrance to the venue – preventing Mr. Ross and his entourage from entering the premises.  A decision was made from Mr. Ross’ team the conditions were becoming threatening and posed a security risk.

We want to extend our deepest regrets to our patrons who attended Summer Jamz 17 who should have been treated to an outstanding performance from Rick Ross.  We have the upmost respect for our guests at Chene Park and they deserve better.  This is the fifth Summer Jamz event we have hosted with our partner Radio One and Host 107.5 FM – and until this point with no incident.  Acts of intimidation, bullying, threats or violence of any kind that compromises the security and enjoyment of our shows will not be tolerated at Chene Park.

I will be reviewing this matter with our collective team and sponsoring host to ensure the integrity and respect we hold for our patrons and artists is upheld for future acts performing at Chene Park Amphitheater.

Despite missing out on Rick Ross, fans in attendance did get a chance to see other artists without incident.  Listen to Tha Wire below, get the scoop on who those artists were, also hear more about the local Detroit rapper that blocked Rick Ross from performing and why.
