So scary. Three people were injured when a shooting broke out after rappers Nas and ScHoolboy Q performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Denver, Co. on June 19. Police have officially said they do not have any suspects in custody — but why was ScHoolboy apparently detained?
A joint concert by Nas and ScHoolboy Q took a horrific turn late on June 19 when someone opened fire in the parking lot of Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Denver, Co. Three people were injured and rushed to a nearby hospital, and soon after ScHoolboy himself appeared to be getting taken into custody by the Jefferson County police.
Shooting Breaks Out At Nas & ScHoolboy Q Concert
Three gunshot victims were found in a vehicle near Red Rocks at about 11 p.m., according to the Denver Post, and that’s when the entire park was shut down with no one being allowed in or out. The three victims were transported to Denver Health hospital — thankfully, all three are in stable condition. Two other passengers were also in the vehicle, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said they were helping with the investigation.
The Sheriff’s Office tweeted out an update on the investigation on June 20:
#JCSO investigators working overnight at Red Rocks. No suspect in custody. Updates on Twitter. Park access anticipated in the A.M.

However, though they officially say that they have no suspects in custody, multiple fans snapped pictures of a man who appeared to be ScHoolboy Q being detained by police. The photos were taken just one block away from where the shooting occurred:

There is the possibility that ScHoolboy was brought in by police for questioning or another reason not connected to the shooting — but as of now no official information has been released. Additionally, neither Nas, ScHoolboy, nor Flying Lotus, who also performed at the concert, have tweeted about the incident.
