There's tragic news out of Colorado as three people were shot in the parking lot of iconic
Morrison venue Red Rocks Amphitheatre last night after a Feed The Rocks concert featuring
Nas, Flying Lotus, Schoolboy Q and
other acts. The Denver News reports that as of press time no
arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. The victims, who were shot in a
white SUV, drove into Denver following the incident,
where they were transported to a nearby hospital after coming to a stop in the city.
After the shooting took place, the venue was locked down. No one was allowed in and out of
the venue while police searched vehicles looking for the shooter. 9News reports that the last car was finally allowed
to leave Red Rocks around 3 a.m. The status of the victims has not been detailed at this
time, though officials have stated that they are alive.
"We do not believe this is a random shooting into a crowd," Jefferson County Sheriff
spokesperson Mark Techmeyer said at a press conference. "We don't know what the motive
would have been for the shooter or what the connection is with the victims."
