Lil Baby's concert in Memphis, TN, was cut short last night (September 7) after a concertgoer was shot and injured, Variety reports.

The rapper was performing at the FedExForum amid his It's Only Us tour when an unidentified shooter fired at an audience member, who was injured and transported to Regional One Health in critical condition.

People on social media have allegedly identified the victim as Young Dolph's cousin, CEO Jizzle, who has since been posting videos from the hospital.

According to a statement from the Memphis Police Department, at 10:23 p.m., police responded to reports of a shooting at the 191 Beale Street venue β€” about 30 minutes into Lil Baby's set. "No other injuries were reported and all have cleared the facility," they wrote.
Fan footage of the incident shows Lil Baby and Rylo Rodriguez mid-performance when the shot was fired, and both rappers quickly retreated backstage. Videos also show the victim being rolled out of the FedExForum on a stretcher.
The rapper recently tweeted about the incident, promising concertgoers a refund. His next show of the tour, scheduled to take place at Louisville, KY's KFC Yum! Center tonight, has been cancelled.
