Rapper 29-E was shot Sunday morning following a concert in Seattle. The up-and-coming rapper was one of three victims wounded during the shooting but was the only fatality.

According to reports, the shooting occurred following a dispute at Seattle's Chop Suey nightclub. The gunmen allegedly opened the club's side door and began to shoot into a crowd, which included concert-goers and artists.

29-E was shot and rushed to Harborview Hospital where he later died. The show's host was also hit with a bullet to the chest and is currently in critical condition. Although he has undergone surgery, doctors have not said whether or not he will survive. The third person wounded received less critical injuries and is said to be in stable condition.

Two suspects have been apprehended and are being questioned by authorities. Though it has not been confirmed, authorities believe that the shooting may have been gang related.
