DENVER (AP) — A gunman with a rifle fired on an SUV carrying rapper ScHoolboy Q after a concert at the popular Red Rocks outdoor amphitheater near Denver, but he wasn't hurt, investigators said Friday.
Three other people suffered non-life threatening injuries during the attack late Thursday in a parking lot at Red Rocks.
Investigators have not released a possible motive for the shooting and said they do not know if ScHoolboy Q was targeted. No arrests have been made.
"We have a lot to learn," said Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.
ScHoolboy Q, whose birth name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, is from Los Angeles. His most recent album, "Oxymoron," debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member.
He and Kendrick Lamar, who was nominated for seven Grammys this year, are members of Black Hippy.
ScHoolboy Q said on Twitter Friday that he was OK.
"im str8...... dont trip," he wrote.
Ray Alba, a representative for ScHoolboy Q, didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
The rapper and at least four other people were in a white SUV that was fired on at the venue in the foothills west of Denver, authorities said.
They drove themselves to a Denver intersection about 15 miles away, apparently in search of a hospital, before being stopped by Denver police and taken for medical attention, Kelley said.
ScHoolboy Q and another uninjured person were briefly handcuffed while police assessed the situation, but no one in the vehicle was arrested. Kelley said ScHoolboy Q was not a suspect in the shooting.
