MEMPHIS, Tenn — Memphis Police said Friday they believe the shooting Thursday night inside FedExForum during rapper Lil Baby’s concert was premeditated and the victim was targeted.
The man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and was in non-critical Friday morning, according to MPD.
Memphis Police responded to the shooting Sept. 7, 2023, just before 10:30 p.m. at FedExForum at 191 Beale Street.
MPD said after the shooting, the concert was canceled and everyone was cleared out of the building. They said no other injuries were reported.
Investigators are trying to determine the identity of the shooter.
MPD said FedExForum contracts with a private security company which screens people for weapons. They are trying to determine how the shooter "was able to circumvent the security screening process."
Anyone with information related to the shooting should call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-2274 (CASH).
Friday, Lil Baby tweeted out a promise for refunds for concertgoers since he was unable to perform.
