Shooting at Kanye West Concert in Birmingham England

Ugh. Glad to hear everyone will recover..

Stewards Shot During Rapper's Concert

Two stewards have been shot during a UK concert by American rapper Kanye West, police said. The workers are thought to have been attacked as a group of people were being escorted from the NEC Arena, near Solihull, West Midlands, for not having tickets to the event. Police officers were called to the incident at the front entrance to the venue shortly after 10pm last night and the stewards were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds...

In a statement, West Midlands Police said: "This incident involved individuals who had been ejected from the venue for attempting to try to gain entrance to a pop concert without tickets. "Firearms were discharged and two stewards were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening."

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the shooting or who saw anything unusual during the concert to come forward. Kanye West was performing the last night of his five-date Touch The Sky tour in the UK..
