ScHoolboy Q was apparently detained after a shooting took place in the parking lot of Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater yesterday (June 19) outside of a Nas, ScHoolboy Q and Flying Lotus concert. Three people were reportedly wounded in the shooting.
The TDE rapper provided an update on his status today.
“im str8…… don’t trip,” ScHoolboy Q wrote in a tweet today (June 20).
After the shooting, the venue was shut down and law enforcement officials searched for the gunman. Authorities said they were looking for a Black male with a rifle.
Karl Gehring, whose verified Twitter account says he is a reporter for The Denver Post, took a photograph of ScHoolboy Q, saying he was detained by Denver Police. The Denver Post published Gehring’s photograph.
ABC’s James Dougherty also posted an image of Q, saying the image was of “the man detained.”
