Shoot­ing in­volv­ing rap­per likely not ran­dom

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

DENVER (AP) — A shoot­ing in­volv­ing rap­per ScHool­boy Q af­ter a con­cert at the his­toric Red Rocks am­phithe­ater west of Denver was likely not a ran­dom act of vi­o­lence, au­thor­i­ties said Satur­day.

“This is not just a co­in­ci­dence. We think there is prob­a­bly more to it than that,” said Jacki Kel­ley, a spokes­woman for the Jef­fer­son County Sher­iff’s Of­fice. “It does seem to be more tar­geted than ran­dom.”

The rap­per was not hurt in Thurs­day night’s shoot­ing, but three other people in the ve­hi­cle he was in sus­tained non­life threat­en­ing in­juries. One of the vic­tims was re­leased from the hospi­tal Fri­day morn­ing.

No ar­rests have been made, but Kel­ley said in­ves­ti­ga­tors have re­ceived nu­mer­ous tips and are try­ing to de­ter­mine a mo­tive for the at­tack in a park­ing lot at the out­door venue, where the Bea­tles and Grate­ful Dead have per­formed.
