Man arrested in connection with shooting at Lil Baby concert
A man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that wounded one person at a Lil Baby concert last month (September 7).
Last month, The Memphis Police Department said on social media that officers had responded to a report of a shooting at 10:23 p.m. at 191 Beale Street, which is the address of the FedEx Forum, where Lil Baby was playing.
According to a police press release, the show was cancelled immediately after the shooting and the venue evacuated. Lil Baby was reportedly rushed off the stage when shots were fired.
A man was wounded and taken to a hospital. No other injuries were reported.
Lil Baby confirmed on his X account, formerly known as Twitter, that those who attended the show would be refunded. “Unfortunately I Couldn’t Perform Last Night In Memphis , Ima Make Sure Everybody Gets A Refund Tho,” he wrote.
