In a scene that’s become all too familiar, gunshots were fired at a promotional party for several hip hop artists. T.I., Young Jeezy and Yo Gotti were unhurt when shots rang out at a club called Label in Charlotte, N.C.
Area police confirmed that gunfire took place at about 7 p.m. Eastern time.
“Two people were injured with gunshot wounds. One person drove themselves to the hospital and one person was transported by ambulance,” said Captain J.D. Thomas, watch commander for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police. “Both are non-life-threatening injuries.”
One victim was female, he added.
Selena Alexander, a reporter for Elite Insiders who was covering the event, told USA Today that she heard the gunfire and ducked, and then the scene turned to chaos. She said that the second the gunshots rang out, the artists were hustled off the stage.
Video of the chaos appeared on Instagram, posted by someone under the name ATLPics.
The show was in connection to the C.I.A.A. basketball tournament.
“Aren’t we too old for this?” tweeted ATLPics.
