This past weekend marked the celebratory festivities for the CIAA in Charlotte, North Carolina. And while the parties were undoubtedly live and turned up, they ended with a bang.
On Saturday, two shots were fired at a concert headlined by T.I., Yo Gotti, and Young Jeezy at Label Club.
Fortunately no one was killed, however two people suffered minor injuries and were rushed to the hospital.
As for T.I., Yo Gotti, and Young Jeezy—-they were thankfully not on stage when the shootout occurred.
T.I. was reportedly offstage while Yo Gotti and Young Jeezy remained in the V.I.P. section.
Since the violent outburst at Label club, the venue has released a statement saying that it will cooperate with police officials while continuing to throw parties.
"The exact circumstances concerning the incident have yet to be determined. Officials at Label are cooperating with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department concerning their investigation of this matter,” the statement read. “Tonight’s events at Label will take place as scheduled. It should be noted that there will continue to be very substantial security for all Label events during tournament weekend.”
Thank goodness that no one was seriously injured during this mini shoot out. What is up with people bringing guns and shooting at concerts and parties? What happened to simply having a good time?
One things for sure is that security needs to be way tighter when dealing with big events like this. Hopefully, this will be a lesson learned.
