A sheriff’s deputy shot a man who appeared to be firing a weapon into the air outside a scheduled Ice Cube concert at the Del Mar racetrack on Sunday.

The shooting, which occurred during the final race of the day, sparked a chaotic scene. The man who was shot was taken to the hospital; his condition was not known.

A video posted on Twitter showed a sheriff’s deputy pull her gun and fire what sounded like four rounds after a man standing near an entrance gate is seen firing his gun into the air.

The article goes on to state the following:

The incident took place during the 10th race. In a broadcast of the race posted on Twitter, an announcer repeatedly says, “There’s gunfire at the track,” as horses continue along the course.

A witness said people who were in the concert arena were evacuated, creating gridlock in the parking lot where gates were blocking exits. Concertgoers streamed back through the paddock area of the racetrack.

At 7:22 p.m., the Del Mar racetrack tweeted that the “situation has been contained” and said the concert “is moving forward as planned.” By 8:30 p.m., the concert had begun.
