Rap star Young Jeezy reportedly missed out on an opportunity to perform in front of his Toronto, Canda fans as gunfire prematurely ended a concert last night and has placed a victim in serious condition.
While reports are still coming together, at least one person was struck by a bullet.
Toronto Police are investigating a shooting early Thursday at a concert by American rapper Young Jeezy. Shots rang out at the Sound Academy around 12:30 a.m. sending hundreds of people fleeing from the 11 Polson St. nightclub. The male victim went to St. Michael's Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and was in serious condition. There was no word on suspects. (Jam! Showbiz)
After the incident, Jeezy hopped on Twitter to apologize to his fans.
"Backstage @ Sound Academy in Toronto! Police closed venue and cancelled the greatest show!!! I will be back! Next stop London, Ontario!," he tweeted April 4th night.

In early March, gunfire stopped a Nipsey Hussle concert from happening in Arizona.
Tempe police are still looking for two suspects after Friday night's mass shooting at a Tempe nightclub. Fourteen people were shot at rapper Nipsey Hussle's show. No one was killed, but at least two were in serious condition. One man was arrested. In a statement, the Clubhouse Music Venue said it provided the same security it has been using for the past seven years following another shooting. The statement also said the last time Hussle performed at the venue, there were no incidents. (My Fox Phoenix)
The West Coast rapper later came forward to speak on the incident.
"Off the top it was a tragedy," he expressed. "I'm glad nobody died. I'm glad that everybody is making it. From what I understand, making a good natural recovery." He went on to say, "You know, I issued a statement out through my Twitter that was written by me. It was basically denouncing the whole situation. That's not what I represent through my music. That's not the fanbase that my music attracts. My condolences to everybody that was involved on the receiving end." (XXL Mag)
