Shooting Cancels Boosie Badazz Set

Two people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries at a motor rally and concert at a Virginia county motorsports park April 1, sending at least 10,000 attendees in a rush for the exits before headliner Boosie Badazz could take the stage.

Two individuals were hospitalized with gunshot wounds and another was struck by a car in the scramble to exit
The annual Spring Fest featured music, a bike rally and a car show. Local police estimated attendance at the event between 10,000 and 12,000.
“It was a huge crowd,” Maj. William Knott of the Dinwiddie Sheriff’s Office told WTVR-TV. “Fortunately, the injuries seem to be minor. It’s something that could have turned out a lot worse.”
In addition to the two individuals, two cars were reportedly struck by bullets, and the subsequent glass shattering caused another injury.
Badazz expressed frustration that he wouldn’t be allowed to take the stage after the gunfire, which was reported at several locations in the park around 8 p.m.
 “Kinda pissed off.  I was supposed to be in Dinwiddie at the car show. They started shooting. Started shooting again. So I won’t be allowed to go. Now all these girls walkin’ in the hotel ‘I ain’t goin’ to Boosie show, they be shootin’ too much!’” the artist said in an Instagram video. He also posted that his heart and prayers went out to the victims of the shooting and that he was not involved with the shootings at all.
Guns were reportedly prohibited at the venue, although there were apparently no metal detectors at the entrance.
