E-40 'Regrets' Concert Shooting
Five people were injured in the early hours of Saturday morning when gunmen opened fire after the star's sold-out gig in Denver, Colorado. Police report that the shooting happened outside the Vinyl nightclub in the city's downtown district at 2am as fans began to exit the venue. One unnamed victim was reportedly rushed to Denver Health Medical Center and remains in a critical condition. The other four were released after treatment.
The rapper's manager Chaz Hayes tells AllHipHop.com, "E-40 and his camp were uninvolved in the unfortunate incident at Club Vinyl in Denver on Dec. 27, 2008. Neither E-40 nor anyone traveling with him was in the venue at the time. In fact, E-40 had concluded his performance and been back in the hotel room. During his time at the venue, and in fact during the trip to Denver as a whole, he encountered nothing but love and gave nothing but love back. E-40 had a crowd pleasing and peaceful show."
But although the star "certainly regrets that this incident took place", Hayes states his client and his camp are "unable to control the poor and tragic choices that other adults choose to make".
Police are continuing to investigate the shooting.
