Houston, Texas rapper Lil’ Flip was in the news last week for missing a court date, prompting a bench warrant for his arrest. Just days later, the former Columbia/Sony Records platinum star and Screwed Up Click member was in Denver, Colorado, performing on April 20.

According to a report at HotNewHipHop.com, the event in Denver’s Civic Center Park was in celebration for Colorado’s legalized stance on marijuana, associated with the unofficial “smoker’s holiday” of 4/20. During the event, eyewitnesses and video confirm that there was a shooting around 5pm local time. Two people are reported to have been shot, along with a pet dog. There is believed to be one shooter, whose identity was not revealed. The event was stopped following the shooting incident.
