The Lil Baby Concert Shooting
Lil Baby's performance at the FedEx Forum in Memphis on Sept. 7 ended in gunfire when shots rang out just 30 minutes into the show. CEO Jizzle, who is Young Dolph's cousin, was wounded during the shooting and hospitalized.
After the show, Lil Baby released the following statement: "Due to the unforeseen events that took place in Memphis last night, I was not able to give my fan a full performance. As a result, a full refund will be issued to all those in attendance. Further details on how ticket holders can receive their refund will be provided by Ticketmaster directly."
It is unclear if concertgoers have yet to get their money back.
