CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PIX11/AP) — Two people were injured from gunshot wounds fired at a promotional party for rappers T.I., Young Jeezy and Yo Gotti in Charlotte Saturday, police said.

Shots rang out around 7 p.m. as all three artists were performing at the N.C. Music Factory during the “CIAA Weekend Takeover party,” the Associated Press reported. They were immediately rushed offstage.

It is not clear if the event was officially sanctioned by the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which held its annual basketball tournaments in Charlotte this past week, according to The Charlotte Observer.

The victims were being treated at a nearby hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

It is not clear who the suspect was targeting, police said. No arrests have been made.

Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs was scheduled to appear at 10 p.m.

Caution: video contains some expletives.
