People Shot at Drag Strip Rap Concert, Bike Rally

DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) — Local media in Richmond, Virginia are reporting a multiple shooting at a rap concert following a bike rally at a drag strip in Dinwiddie.

WTVR reports that two people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening bullet wounds and a third person was cut by glass in a car hit by gunfire. WWBT reports (http://bit.ly/2oMjw3H ) that one person was hit by a car in the ensuing chaos. The first shots apparently were fired near the stage where some 10,000 came to hear Lil Boosie perform after a bike rally at the Virginia Motorsports Park Saturday night.

Virginia State Police referred questions to the Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s office, which was preparing a statement as officers worked to clear the park.
