  • Shooting breaks out at California's Del Mar race track

"The racetrack has always been refuge from realities of our World, today shortly after last race at Del Mar Racing, several shots were fired yards from our TVG set during brawl outside Fountain admission gate", Schrupp wrote.

A male suspect has been injured after a sheriff's deputy shot him when he opened fire in a mid-race shooting at Del Mar track in California.

The track was hosting a post-race concert featuring Ice Cube, the popular rap artist, writer and actor whose former group NWA, was the subject in the movie, "Straight Outta Compton".

The San Diego Sheriff's Homicide Unit said a man approached the ticket window at about 6:40 p.m. seeking entry to the show, but was told it was sold out. The concert drew a crowd so large the area to the west of the grandstand was filled to capacity. The initial shots appeared to go off near the venue's racetrack, where TVG announcers covering a race screamed out "gunfire" live on air.

Several deputies administered first aid to a man on the ground as they waited for EMTs to arrive, according to the footage.
