Police say a man was critically hurt in a shooting on Thursday night at FedExForum. Police did not indicate whether the gunshot took place inside or outside the arena.
When bullets were fired inside the venue, Lil Baby was hurried from the stage, according to WREG-TV. Just before 10:30 on Thursday night, according to Memphis Police, they arrived at the site on Beale Street and discovered one individual suffering gunshot wounds.
A man is seen being wheeled out of the FedExForum on video while still conscious and awake. He was transferred to Regional One in a serious condition, according to the police. The identity of that shooter was unclear as of Friday morning.
“I heard a pop,” said Clarissa Johnson, who attended the concert. “I’m not sure what happened but had a suit so I told all my crew, ‘Get down.’ So we evacuated. Once we evacuated, did a head count. I’m still not sure what happened. It’s not so sweet tonight though.”
