Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan has come forward to speak on the hype and controversy surrounding a fatal shooting that went down at his Ohio concert last weekend.
Quan has put an immediate end to any perceived connection to the crime and promised to speak to the deceased fan's family.
Quan tells TMZ ... "It's sad to hear that someone died especially during the holiday season. I just want everybody to know me nor anybody in my crew or affiliation had anything to do with the shooting in Ohio." He adds, "We will be reaching out to the family of the deceased" City officials are reportedly calling for the state to strip Red Zone of its liquor license. (TMZ)

Coincidentally, gunfire went off when Quan performed at the venue back in November.

A few weeks ago, violence also rang out at concerts by Atlanta's Lil Scrappy and Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill.
This incident comes weeks after six people were shot at separate Lil Scrappy and Meek Mill concerts. On Dec. 7, four people were left with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds after a Meek Mill concert in Delaware. It is believed that there were multiple shooters in this incident. Shots rang out at a Lil Scrappy concert on Dec. 6 as well. One person was killed and another was injured in a shootout that occurred outside of a Lil Scrappy concert at Dan Foley Park in Vallejo, Calif. Both victims were female. They were not believed to be the intended targets. (M Starz)
