Man fatally shot backstage at California concert

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP)  Police say a 38-year-old man has died after being shot multiple times during a concert at a popular Silicon Valley music venue.

Mountain View police spokeswoman Shino Tanaka said the shooting happened backstage at Shoreline Amphitheatre, where Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa performed Friday night. The unidentified victim died at a local hospital Saturday.

Police rushed to the outdoor venue after receiving multiple calls that shots had been fired, but officers are still looking for a male suspect believed to be in his 20s. They are asking concertgoers for photos or videos that might provide clues.

Tanaka tells KTVU-TV (http://bit.ly/1BOuxnh ) that authorities don't yet know how a gun made it into the amphitheater, where patrons undergo security screening.

Wiz Khalifa has a performance scheduled for Saturday night in Chula Vista, California.

Black-on-black shootings:  the same headline since the dawn of rap.  And there seems to be no end in sight.  When viewed from a white folks' perspective it paints the entire black population which is really a slap in the face to those young black men not buying into the b.s. rap lifestyle.

Are you sure it wasn't a white police man shooting another innocent thug. Time to start rioting and looting. I guess that's the way to honor and remember the fallen in the minority world!

The best thing that could happen at a rap concert would be a very large, very deep sinkhole that left no survivors. I don't care who's chilens they are, black or white.
