(AllHipHop News) A concert in Toronto featuring Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy ended early, after gunshots were fired inside the venue.
Young Jeezy took to the stage at Toronto’s Sound Academy, last night (April 4).
According to eyewitnesses, the shooting took place right before Young Jeezy was supposed to perform, around 12:30 AM.
But the show was immediately halted, when several gunshots rang out inside of the venue.
Young Jeezy confirmed the reports via his Twitter account, early this morning (April 5).
“Backstage @ Sound Academy in Toronto,” Young Jeezy tweeted. “Police closed venue and cancelled the greatest show! I will be back! Next stop London,Ontario! Can’t Ban the snowman. I be back Toronto!”
Witnesses said that prior to the shooting, there were various fights in the crowd, which was reportedly hostile from the outset of the concert.
As of press time, it is not known if police have suspects in question over the shooting.
Young Jeezy is on a tour of Canada as part of the “Hustlaz Ambition” tour. There are two dates left.
Tonight, Jeezy will perform at London Music Hall in London, Ontario and tomorrow, the tour winds down in Montreal at the Olympia Theatre.
