Gunshots were fired after the Nas and Schoolboy Q concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado last night. The venue is ten miles out from Denver that houses 10,000 people. Three people were sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The three victims, still unnamed, were shot by a rifle while sitting in their white SUV in the Red Rocks parking lot at 10:30 pm local time according to authorities, minutes after the concert had ended.

Jacki Kelley, the public information director for Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said the victim’s vehicle drove away from the scene afterwards and stopped at an intersection in Denver when police were finally called. Police checked every vehicle coming out of the complex, but found nothing. No shooter has been identified and the only description at the time is a black male, 5’10-6’0. Police detained Schoolboy for questioning before releasing him. Police have set up a tip-off telephone line and believe to have a large number of witnesses.
