The recent shooting at a ScHoolboy Q show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside of Denver may not have been a random act of violence.
According to police, the June 19 incident, which involved the shooting of three men who were hit by gunfire in a vehicle that also housed the Los Angeles-born rapper, was likely targeted at Q.
“This is not just a coincidence. We think there is probably more to it than that,” a spokeswoman for Jefferson County’s Sheriff’s Department said via The Associated Press. “It does seem to be more targeted than random.”
Five people in total were in the struck vehicle that sped away upon hailing gunfire only later to be pulled over by Denver Police. ScHoolboy Q was detained by police during the beginning of their investigation but later released. The three men shot in the incident did not sustain life-threatening injuries. Q was not injured during the series of events.
The Jefferson County’s Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman would not confirm that the shooting was gang-related.
