schoolboy q concert shooting

A shooting broke out in a parking lot following a ScHoolboy Q, Nas and Flying Lotus show at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre near Denver, Colorado last night leaving three people wounded. The three victims were discovered by police with gunshot wounds while riding in a white SUV on 6th Avenue and Kalamath Street, and were later transported to Denver Health Medical Center. Two other passengers were in the vehicle, but came away unharmed.

While ScHoolboy Q was spotted being cuffed near the scene of the shooting and reportedly detained as part of the investigation, neither police nor local media state that any arrests have been made yet. However, police aren’t assuming this was a random shooting (via 9 News):

“We do not believe this is a random shooting into a crowd,” Jefferson County Sheriff spokesperson Mark Techmeyer said. “We don’t know what the motive would have been for the shooter or what the connection is with the victims.”

After receiving an alleged $260,000 payday for selling the Jay Z, Solange fight video, the person responsible for leaking the footage has been fired from the Standard Hotel. I guess this pretty much confirms that it was in fact an employee who let the footage go. Gawker cites The AP as the source for this tidbit.

Apparently, the Standard told reporters the hotel turned over “all available information to criminal authorities,” after firing the employee yesterday.

Things aren’t looking good for Gucci Mane. According to reports, the ATL rapper copped out to a plea deal for his gun possession charge. As a convicted felon, he was facing 10 years for the charge but is now only expected to be sentenced to 39 months.

Gucci will be officially sentenced in July but will likely have 10 months served retracted from his bid. He has been in prison since last September and also faces a $250,000 fine for his crimes.

As a daily subway rider this is defintely a scary story. I don’t know what is happening in the world lately but there has been another train derailment, and this time it was right here in New York City. According to reports, a Manhattan-bound F train derailed on the express track near the station at Broadway and 65th St. in Woodside, Queens. It happened at about 11 AM with 400 passengersvaboard the subway when it went off the tracks.

The cause of derailment is not yet known and there have been no reported deaths. Injury reports remain scarce but we will keep you updated.

Derailments are relatively rare in the subway system. The last major derailment was in August 1991, when a No. 4 train came off the tracks at Union Square. Five people were killed and more than 200 were injured. The motorman, who was drunk at the time of the accident, was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 15 years in prison.(via AP)
