1 Dead in Shooting Outside Lil Durk Concert in Philadelphia
A shooting outside a Lil Durk concert in Philadelphia on Friday (Sept. 4) left one dead, Billboard has confirmed.
The victim was a 25-year-old, who was shot in the torso and killed, police told Billboard. People were waiting to come into the show at the Theatre of the Living Arts around 8 when it happened. The suspected shooter got away in a limousine, and the limo was stopped a few blocks later. Around 100 people were still inside the venue. Shots went through the windshield of the tour bus, though no one was injured in the bus.
The police haven't yet released the name of the victim, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, who was pronounced dead at the hospital. Police told the paper that the shooting suspect was wearing a black T-shirt that said "OFT" on the front.
Billboard's request for comment from Durk's rep went unreturned at press time.
Durk's opening acts at the show were Hypno Carlito and Gunplay.
Back in March, Uchenna Agina -- the Def Jam rapper's manager -- was shot and killed outside a Chicago restaurant. He was 24.
