Tech N9ne - Tech N9ne Tourmate Shot
A performer on rapper Tech N9ne's tour has been hospitalised after he was shot following a concert on Sunday (26Jun11).
The unidentified victim was gunned down in an alley in the early hours of Monday (27Jun11) after the show at the Knitting Factory in Reno, Nevada.
He is expected to make a recovery, according to a statement from Tech N9ne's label Strange Music.
It reads, "Nearly two hours after the show had ended, it appears that this performer was the victim of a random and senseless act of violence on a nearby city street adjacent to the club where he had performed hours earlier.
"By all reports, the victim was talking on his phone when he was approached by six individuals who had not been in attendance at that evening's show.
"Shortly after, shots were fired and the victim was struck multiple times. He was rushed to a local hospital where he remains in (a) serious condition but is expected to recover."
The notice states the man is an opening act on Tech N9ne's All 6's And 7's trek but not signed to Strange Music.
Four suspects linked to the crime have been detained.
