Following the tragic shooting at the University of North Carolina Charlotte on Tuesday (April 30) that left two people dead and at least four others injured, Waka Flocka Flame canceled his performance scheduled to take place on campus later that night. 

The rapper took to his Instagram story to update fans, writing, "I pray all my fans are safe and ok! [Not] sure what's going on, I just landed in Charlotte to terry news!"

"I will not be able to perform or even make it to the venue," he continued. "Please to all my supporters and followers be safe." He later tweeted out that he is out of harm's way and nowhere near the campus.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said that one person was in custody and that it did not believe there were other gunmen, according to The New York Times. See all of Waka's updates below.
