DINWIDDIE, VA. (CelerbiyAccess) — An April 1st concert by rapper Boosie Badazz was canceled shortly before it was set to start after shots were fired inside of the venue.
According to local CBS affiliate WTVR, officials estimate there were 10,000 to 12,000 people in attendance at Virginia Motorsports Park for the all-day Spring Fest event that included a motorcycle show and concert.
Major William Knott from the Dinwiddie Sheriff’s Office told WTVR that the gunfire occurred at approximately 8 PM. Two women were taken to the hospital and treated for reported minor injuries and later released. It was unclear if the injuries were as a result of gunfire.
