*At first Schoolboy Q seemed to be the victim of a random act of violence after a concert shooting last week, but authorities believe there’s more to it than that.
Police speculate the LA based rapper was specifically targeted at the shooting, which left three people hospitalized.
Q took to Twitter to update his fans on how he was doing post-shooting with a short tweet.
“im str8…… dont trip,” Q tweeted. He followed that tweet with letting his fans know he still had more shows to do, regardless.
He added, “and IM STILL GOING TO ICELAND 2MORROW, & NEW YORK WEDNESDAY.”
Nevertheless, Denver, CO police believe it’s more to this shooting than a random act.
“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.”
Q was in the vehicle where three people were shot and hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. One of the victims was released Friday morning, however.
No arrests have been made, but the police received many tips and are developing the motive behind the shooting.
The victims drove themselves after the shooting — looking for a hospital. They were soon after stopped by Denver police and then, taken for medical attention.
Q and another victim were briefly handcuffed, but he isn’t a suspect in this shooting, of course.
The crazy part of the shooting is it was after a benefit concert for GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project).
