DEL MAR, CA – A performance from Ice Cube was nearly derailed due to an officer-involved shooting on Sunday (September 2).
The N.W.A legend was scheduled to perform at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, California, following the last race at the horse racing track.
According to TMZ, shortly before Cube graced the stage for a post-race concert, a 22-year-old man fired shots into the crowd when he was informed at will call that there weren’t any tickets available for the concert.
Police returned fire, striking the suspect who was later hospitalized. The man, who was identified as Daniel Elizarraras is currently in stable condition.

Audio from the incident was eerily captured on video, during a broadcast of the race.
