UPDATE: Police are having a difficult time getting a description of the gunman who fired shots at a SUV carrying rapper ScHoolboy Q after his concert in Denver.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer said witnesses couldn’t get a good look at the gunman because it was so dark and he was hidden. Three people were injured last Thursday (June 19) in a parking lot near Red Rocks amphitheater.
The Denver Police brought out the big guns when they responded to the scene of the recent shooting at ScHoolboy Q’s concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. TMZ has obtained the 911 audio from the incident, where a gunman opened fired on a vehicle the TDE rapper and his crew were sitting in, and it’s clear authorities weren’t taking any chances. On the tape, officers can be heard interacting with dispatchers on the details of the incident. In one of the clips, an officer tells a dispatcher to tell all reporting officers to be “rifle ready.”
As previously reported, authorities believe a lone gunman used a rifle to shoot up Q’s SUV, striking three of its occupants, in the parking lot following a performance which also featured Nas and Flying Lotus. The victims fled the scene after which they were stopped at the intersection of 6th Avenue and Kalamath Street. Q was not injured during the shooting and is reportedly cooperating with the investigation. The three individuals who were hit by rounds were reportedly treated for non-life threatening injuries. The gunman remains at large.
