Two shot at Kanye gig...

Published by Warren Dell under on Wednesday, March 01, 2006
Two security guards were shot at a Kanye West gig at the Birmingham NEC arena last night. They were fired at after walking a group away form the arena who tried to get in without tickets. Both guards were still being treated for gunshot wounds but their injuries aren't deemed life threatening and they are in a stable condition.

The event happened just after 10pm last night on what was the last night of the Touch The Sky tour.

In a statement, West Midlands Police said: "This incident involved individuals who had been ejected from the venue for attempting to try to gain entrance to a pop concert without tickets. Firearms were discharged and two stewards were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening."

Police are appelaing for information and anyone who saw the incident or anything unusual during the concert to come forward.

Another gig, another shooting...

Although it's not a great thing to happen these types of incidents are marring peoples opinion of any events that happen in our scene. Regardless of whether it's only a minority of events or not it's still unacceptable for a few idiots to pose the question to promoters on whether it's worth putting on these events and to the police on giving them the go ahead.
