SUV carrying rapper Schoolboy Q fired on
A gunman with a rifle fired on an SUV carrying rapper Schoolboy Q after a concert at the popular Red Rocks outdoor amphitheater near Denver, but he wasn’t hurt, investigators said Friday.
Three other people suffered non-life threatening injuries during the attack late Thursday in a parking lot at Red Rocks.
Investigators have not released a possible motive for the shooting and said they do not know if Schoolboy Q was targeted. No arrests have been made.
“It just happened 12 hours ago. We have a lot to learn,” said Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.
Schoolboy Q, whose birth name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, is from Los Angeles. His most recent album, “Oxymoron,” debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member.
He and Kendrick Lamar, who was nominated for seven Grammys this year, are members of Black Hippy.
Spokesman: Morgan transferred to rehab
Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has been moved from a hospital to a rehabilitation facility as he recovers from a serious auto accident, his spokesman said Friday.
The former star of “30 Rock” is showing signs of improvement but has a long road to full recovery, spokesman Lewis Kay said in an email. Morgan suffered a broken leg and broken ribs in the June 7 crash.
Kay didn’t identify the rehab facility where Morgan is staying, saying only that it is in New Jersey.
Morgan’s limousine van was hit from behind by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan’s friend James McNair, 62, of Peekskill, N.Y., was killed, and Morgan and two other men were seriously injured.
On Thursday, a report by federal transportation safety investigators said truck driver Kevin Roper was driving 65 mph in the 60 seconds before he slammed into the limo van. The speed limit on that stretch of the turnpike is 55 mph and was lowered to 45 mph that night because of construction.
