UPDATE (6/21): Denver police have delivered a statement regarding the nature of the shooting, saying that it wasn't a random act of violence. "This is not just a coincidence. We think there is probably more to it than that," said Jacki Kelley of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. "It does seem to be more targeted than random."

Original Story: Late Thursday night after a Nas/ScHoolboy Q concert at Colorado's famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, three people were shot in the venue's parking lot.

According to NBC, three men were shot while sitting in a Chevy Suburban in the Red Rocks parking lot at 10:30pm local time. The SUV proceeded to drive into Denver where police found the victims around 11pm, where they were taken to a hospital. The injuries are believed to be non life-threatening, according to local news.

A photo posted to Twitter by a Denver Post reporter shows a man who appears to be ScHoolboy Q being briefly detained by police allegedly at the Denver intersection where the SUV was found at, which is 21 miles from the venue. The rapper was not arrested, however, and no arrests have been made.

The Nas, ScHoolboy Q and Flying Lotus concert at Red Rocks was a benefit show with 5% of the profits going toward GRASP, Denver's Gang Rescue and Support Project.
