Two shot, and several injured at an Asian Doll college concert in North Carolina.
Video footage from the concert shows that a fight broke out while the rapper was on stage.
Officials claimed two people were wounded and several were injured as they ran gunfire at a North Carolina college homecoming concert starring rapper Asian Doll on Saturday night.
Officers called to the Livingstone College campus in Salisbury around 11 p.m. and discovered two persons shot and others injured as attendees fled the gunshots, according to municipal officials.
A fight broke out on stage as Asian Doll was performing, according to the concert video. According to a joint statement from police and school officials, one person who is not a Livingstone student then fired one or more shots.
A male victim with a gunshot wound was flown to Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center in Charlotte, where he was in stable condition, and a female victim with a graze wound was treated at a local hospital and released, according to a text message from the city spokesperson Linda McElroy on Sunday afternoon. She couldn’t say whether the victims were adults or children.
McElroy stated that no arrests had been made.
Livingstone is a private historically Black institution in Salisbury, North Carolina, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northeast of Charlotte.
According to Livingstone President Dr. Anthony J. Davis, the school’s aim is to safeguard students’ mental health and to examine public safety measures in order to establish a safe atmosphere. He said the college is assisting the police with their investigation.
“I am saddened because our students, alumni, family, and friends were exposed to this senseless act of violence,” Davis said.
The shooting was not the only one at a homecoming gathering over the weekend. A shooting outside a campus library as a DJ performed early Sunday injured four people, including three students, during Clark Atlanta University’s homecoming.
