Nas Gig Halted By Gun Fire

Rapper NAS was at the centre of a shooting drama in London last night (21MAR05) when a man jumped on stage and fired a gun during his set.

The IF I RULED THE WORLD star's Brixton Academy concert was brought to a sudden halt after shots rung out as Nas - real name NASIR JONES - was performing to thousands of fans.

The premises were immediately evacuated. No-one was hurt and no arrests have been made.

Police - who were called to the Academy following reports of shots being fired inside the venue and crowds fleeing the scene - claim two bullets aimed at the ceiling were discovered once the auditorium was empty.

A police spokeswoman says, "We believe that two shots were fired towards the ceiling. Two bullets and two casings have been recovered from the scene."

Nas - who recently married sexy hip-hop star KELIS - has been touring the UK to promote his double A-side single JUST A MOMENT and NO ONE ELSE IN THE ROOM.
