GOLDEN, Colo. -- Authorities say three people were wounded during a shooting outside a Denver-area concert.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's office says the Red Rocks Amphitheatre was shut down late Thursday night after the violence erupted in the parking lot after the concert.

The office says a suspect or suspects are being sought and all cars were searched as concertgoers left the facility.

The three wounded traveled by car into nearby Denver, where they were located by police and taken to a hospital. The sheriff's office says there were two other people in the car, according to The Denver Post.

Denver Health Medical Center said early Friday all three victims were in fair condition.

No arrests have been made.

The amphitheatre website says the concert featured Nas, Schoolboy Q and Flying Lotus. All are rappers.

Rappers at a rap concert? Who knew?

I have read the story on a few sights. CBS is the only one that made sure we knew it was a rap concert.

It'd be news if there weren't any shootings or stabbings at a rap concert.

Black Spring Break is always well-received wherever it ends up.

Rap concerts are right down there near the bottom of my todo list, just above tourism in Sudan.

Flying Lotus isn't actually an MC ("rapper" in journalese). He's a producer - the guy who composes the music.

He's actually very talented. His granduncle was John Coltrane, I believe.

Kind of a distinction without a difference ain’t it? :)

“Walking through forests of palm tree apartments
Scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents
Down by the waterhole, drunk every Friday
Eating their nuts, saving their raisins for Sunday
Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows
They’re fast but they’re lazy, and sleep in green meadows

Well, let’s bungle in the jungle
Well, that’s all right by me, yes.......”

-THE J Tull

When I was going through tech school at Lowry AFB, I got away for a few hours and went to Red Rocks to chill. The only two people there were me and a guy who was playing guitar.

I went down to the stage area, sat a few from him and listened. Beautiful music. We struck up a conversation. Just talked about music for an hour or so.

When I got up to leave, he offered me his hand and said I’m Henry. I said, I’m EQ and it was truly a pleasure listening to you. He thanked me and I left. In the car going back to base the song, “take me home, country roads” came on.

I listened to a couple of bars of the song, pulled over and just sat there. To this day I wonder if I received a free concert from John Denver.

It's a lot like comparing Occupy Wall street to a Tea Party rally.

Occupy=rapes,heroin ODs,millions spent by the City of New York to disinfect the area after they left.

Tea Party=no rapes,no heroin ODs,not even a gum wrapper on the ground after the crowd leaves.
