It seems like the members of TDE can’t catch a break while on the road. Last year, Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ were put in handcuffs after a St. Louis show and now another rapper from the collective experienced a run-in with the cops after a concert last night (June 19).

Schoolboy Q was put in handcuffs after his show with Nas and Flying Lotus in Denver on Thursday. Three people were shot at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, according to the Denver Post, the first outlet to report the incident. A photo of Q standing in front of a cop car, his hands handcuffed behind his back, serves as the story’s lead image.

According to police, a white SUV, which attempted to flee the scene, was stopped after gunshots were fired. At this time, victims are in stable condition. Two passengers in the SUV are working with police.

After the incident, the Amphitheater was immediately shut down. No one could enter the venue or its parking lot. Police say they’re continuing their investigation. “We’re trying to figure out what happened,” said Mark Techmeyere, one of the officers working on the case.
