Shots Fired At Young Jeezy Performance
The shots were fired around 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28, at Label, a nightclub in North Carolina which was hosting a “CIAA Weekend Takeover” event with performances by T.I., Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti and Sean Diddy Combs. Diddy was not present during the shootings.
Local police confirm that two people were injured with gunshot wounds, one male and one female, but their names have not been released. “Two people injured with gunshot wounds. One person drove themselves to the hospital and one person was transported by ambulance. Both are non-life-threatening injuries,” confirmed Captain J.D. Thomas of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
After the shots were fired, T.I., Yo Gotti and Young Jeezy were rushed to safety while audience members erupted in a panic. There are conflicting reports as to what exactly the rappers were doing at the time of the shooting – whether they were onstage performing or enjoying the party in the V.I.P. section.
The police were called immediately, and the exact nature of the attack remains unclear. The nightclub, Label, where the event took place, released a statement on their official Facebook page, saying that they are cooperating fully with the authorities, and that they have “substantial security” so that previously scheduled events can go on as planned. “It should be noted that there will continue to be very substantial security for all Label events during tournament weekend. And, Label remains fully committed to the safety and security of its patrons,” Label said.
