An outdoor concert in Dallas that was supposed to be the title of Memphis, Ten’s rapper Big Boogie ended in tragedy on Sunday morning, as one was killed and at least 11 were injured.
Shots were fired at the entire crowd during the ceremony. One person was shot in the head near the stage. The other victims were taken to a nearby hospital, with one in critical condition and others in stable condition, police said. Three minors were killed, police said.
The event was titled “Second Annual Epic Easter Bike Out and Field Party,” and free admission for children under 10 was advertised to hear a lineup of rap performances. About 2,000 people attended the event, reports indicate. Police responded to the shooting Sunday afternoon at 12:15 AM in the Oak Cliffs neighborhood of Dallas.
A notice posted on Big Boogie’s Instagram page said he was shot before reaching the venue, according to the WBCA, an ABC-approved station in Dallas.
Memphis-based rapper Young Dolph and Snooty Wild have been killed in separate shootings in the past six months, but police have not linked those incidents together. The Snooty Wild shooting took place in Houston, while Young Dolph was shot and killed in Memphis.
Police have identified Kilon Dejuan Gilmore, 26, as the victim of a fatal shooting in Dallas. Police said Gilmore was found near the stage of the event with a gunshot wound to the head and died on the spot. No arrests have been made yet.
The Dallas incident happened before another mass shooting in downtown Sacramento, California, that killed six people and injured at least 10 others.
