At the time of the shooting, the identity of the shooter was unknown, and no other injuries were reported. The Memphis Police Department is currently investigating the incident, and the venue is fully cooperating with law enforcement.
The Lil Baby concert, part of the It’s Only Us tour featuring The Kid Laroi and Glorilla, was interrupted by the shots fired.
