Gunfire Rang Out at The Game's Concert Last Night

It happened before he got onstage.

Published October 7, 2016

Attendees of The Game’s concert at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon, got more than they bargained for Thursday night (October 6).

Gunshots were reportedly fired before the Compton rapper was scheduled to step onstage, which had the show come to a close for safety reasons.

According to Elizabeth Dinh of Portland’s KPTV, police did respond to the scene and later confirmed that the shooting did take place inside of the theater. Luckily, they revealed that “no gunshot victims were located” following the shooting, according to a release sent out this morning.

Police however did not rule out the possibility of a shooting victim leaving the theater prior to their arrival for prosecution concerns.

"Initial reports are that someone fired a gun inside the theater and there may be a victim that left the scene prior to police arrival," they added. "At this point, no gunshot victims have been located or have arrived at any area hospital."

Game was there for the Portland stop on his 1992 Block Wars tour. Hopefully this incident was an isolated one. See footage of the aftermath below.
