ScHoolboy Q Detained, 3 Shot Following Nas, ScHoolboy Q, Flying Lotus Concert

The shooting reportedly took place at the Red Rocks Amphitheater parking lot. No report has been made on why ScHoolboy Q was reportedly detained.

A shooting occurred just outside of a Nas, ScHoolboy Q and Flying Lotus concert yesterday (June 19) in Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater. Three people were wounded. 

The shooting took place in the venue's parking lot as the concert was ending, according to Associated Press's report. As a result, Red Rocks was shut down and law enforcement officials searched for the gunman. Authorities said they were looking for a Black male with a rifle. 

The three people who were wounded in the shooting reportedly traveled to Denver, Colorado where they were taken to a nearby hospital by police officials. The wounds did not appear life-threatening, AP reports. 

The thousands in attendance reportedly had their vehicles searched as they left. 

The Associated Press reports that no arrests have been made. 

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."

There has been no official word on why ScHoolboy Q was detained and the rapper's camp has not released a statement on the matter.

    His car was the one shot at and it was targeted. I was at the show (in the same lot) and had a lot of time to think about it as I was waiting for my car to get searched, and I knew he was involved somehow. Nas' fanbase are all adults now and Flying Lotus has the most peaceful audience by far. I've lived here a year and it's pretty quiet but there are a ton of crips here. Ask Gotti why his show was cancelled...

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail,,,,, ========================= www.Jobs73.com =========================

    my theory: shooting happens... they search everyone. Q has some lean or thizz or something illicit on him. gets detained. *mystery solved*

    Q asked them pigs to cuff him for a photo. Goes in line with his gangster persona. Why the fuck is he the only one that got "detained"?

    "The thousands in attendance reportedly had their vehicles searched as they left." THOUSANDS WERE SEARCHED. A CRIP IS THE ONLY ONE DETAINED. THIS SEEMS FISHY. "Authorities said they were looking for a Black male with a rifle." THESE PIGS ALWAYS LOOKIN FOR A BLACK MAN WITH A GUN WHEN THEY KILL UNARMED BLACK MEN ALMOST DAILY.

      NO ONE EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT RACISM. THIS IS STATISTICS HOMIE. A BLACK MAN WILL NEVER FALL AT THE HANDS OF ANOTHER AS MANY TIMES AS A WHITE ON IN THIS NATION. THE ARE MORE BLACK MEN IN PRISON TODAY THAN THERE WERE SLAVES DURING SLAVERY. WHITE BOYS NEED TO GET OFF OF HIP HOP SITES & THE INTERNET PERIOD & GO LEARN THE TRUE HISTORY OF YOUR NATION & THE CURRENT EVENTS, ESPECIALLY THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX WHICH IS LEGAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING & SLAVERY. NEARLY ALL AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS ARE RACIST. EVEN SCHOOL TEACHES YOUNG CHILDREN WHITE SUPREMACIST HISTORY. HIS STORY. HIP HOP IS NOT FOR YOU DUMB WHITE PEOPLE ITS FOR THOSE WHO RELATE TO THE STRUGGLE & HIP HOP IS A REFLECTION OF THIS. ALL THE MATERIALISTIC RAP IS SLAVE MUSIC. BLACK FACE MINSTREL SHOWS FUNDED TO CONTINUE TO OVERPLAY RACIAL STEREOTYPES. WHITE PEOPLE HAVE CONTINUED TO USE BLACK PEOPLE FOR PROGRESSION & POLITICAL GAIN. JIMMY IOVINE IS A GOOD EXAMPLE. FROM NWA TO CHIEF KEEF SENSATIONALIZING BLACK VIOLENCE. EVEN NICKI MINAJ PUSHED AS THE HOTTEST BLACK FEMALE. THEY WANT THAT IMAGE TO BE PROCESSED FROM THE HAIR TO THE ASS. LIKE I SAID, WHITE BOYS, GO LEARN SOMETHING. LISTEN TO JFK OR SOMETHIN. YOU ARE THE MAJORITY IN THIS COUNTRY SO GET TOGETHER & WORK TO CREATE A BETTER NATION

      "THOUSANDS WERE SEARCHED. A CRIP IS THE ONLY ONE DETAINED. THIS SEEMS FISHY." Whats so fishy about a self proclaimed former crip with face tattoos getting questioned about a shooting that occurred during his event? ""Authorities said they were looking for a Black male with a rifle." THESE PIGS ALWAYS LOOKIN FOR A BLACK MAN WITH A GUN WHEN THEY KILL UNARMED BLACK MEN ALMOST DAILY." Again though how stupid can you be? They were looking for a black man with a gun because he just shot 3 fucking people and it's their job! This has nothing to do with unarmed black men getting killed as no one was killed by police and the suspect they were looking for was BLACK and ARMED

      white guy here talking about jobs when his women weigh down the welfare rolls, white guy gonna cosign profiling because that's just what they do, they profile their own so white guy ain't gonna talk about how easily they can check for gunshot residue, white guy ain't gonna wonder why police presence wasn't shown before during to avoid an after shooting hey white guy let's talk about the us truckdriver shortage for the last 5 years, why won't y'all take those jobs? we already know why y'all don't want blacks hired but why not y'all? funny how almost every white guy wants you to believe they're a part of the 1% and all-knowing

    So they searched all those cars and found nothing illegal?No drugs or guns in anybody's car and Q is the only person arrested?I would hope he had nothing to do w/ that BS

      the police said no one was arrested. Q was just detained for questioning, likely because he looks like a homleess person/gangster with them face tattoos.
    • translation
      q doesn't look like a cookie cutter taxpayer citizen like emma & bob so he shouldn't be upset by police and society profiling I look like that citizen so I'm fine

    See, this is the type of shit that happens when a state makes weed legal.

      i figured this kind of thing would be less likely to happen in a state where everyone is high and chill

      Good point, no one has ever been shot in a state where weed isn't legal

      pussy-boy worrying about weed while there's a HUGE heroin epidemic out there because of prescription pills "oh, denver will go down because the cartels will move in and sell weed to our kids" while your town's kids have been stealing your pills out of the cabinet, the beers out your fridge, and hit the park at night and leave the needles for you little doodoo boys to run around in during school
