Lil Baby Concert Ends In Gunfire, One Fan Critically Hurt
Lil Baby’s Memphis concert last night ended in gunfire, with one fan being critically hurt. The shooting happened outside of the FedEx Forum where the Atlanta native was heading his It’s Only Us Tour. The opening acts from the concert included GloRilla, Rylo Rodriguez, Gloss Up, and Hunxho.
The Memphis Police Department posted on social media that they responded to a call about a shooting at 10:23 p.m. at 191 Beale Street where the FedEx Forum is located. “One adult male shooting victim was located and transported to Regional One Health in critical condition,” the post read. “At this time, the identity of the shooter is unknown. No other injuries were reported and all have cleared the facility. Please call 901-528-CASH with any tips on this shooting.”
GloRilla Responds To The Shooting Incident
Neither the shooter nor the victim have been identified at this time. Lil Baby has yet to publicly address the situation but GloRilla hopped on Instagram Live to respond to the senseless shooting.
“What the f—, cuz?! These folks just got they gun in the f—ing arena, fool… insane,” she said. “Yes y’all, Memphis is ghetto as f—. We’ve been on the tour this whole f—ing time and today they wanna f—ing shoot. There hasn’t been a shootout at not one of these shows.”
GloRilla unfortunately had a tragedy happen at one of her concerts earlier this year in Rochester, New York. Three women died due to their injuries caused by a stampede at the concert.
“I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show,” GloRilla tweeted the day after the concert. “My fans mean the world to me [sad face emoji] praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected.”
