JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - Investigators haven't been able to develop a description of a gunman who opened fire on an SUV carrying rapper ScHoolboy Q after a concert at the Red Rocks amphitheater.
Jefferson County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer said witnesses did not get a good look at the gunman because the suspect was hidden by bushes and fled into the darkness. The shooting happened late Thursday in a parking lot near Red Rocks, injuring three people in the SUV, but not the Los Angeles rapper.
A security guard was in the area of the Trading Post, near the shooting when it occurred. The guard was the first to report that a gunman stood up and opened fire on the Suburban with a rifle. After the shooting, the suspect walked away on a trail through the brush in the park.
Techmeyer says there is a possibility the gunman targeted ScHoolboy Q, but the investigation is ongoing. He says the mountainous terrain of the concert venue in the foothills west of Denver and the darkness are making detectives' work more difficult.
About 4,500 people attended the concert featuring ScHoolboy Q, as well as NAS and Flying Lotus.
"Any concert goers in the area of the Trading Post or backstage from 9 -11 p.m., and were videotaping, call 303-271-5612 #JCSO #jeffco," officials said on Twitter.
