Gun Fired After Webbie's Concert in East St. Louis


Polices have been called to the Blackmon's Plaza venue in East St. Louis, Illinois in the wee hours of Sunday morning, April 3 after a fight broke out in the club and one staff was shot in the chaos.

Police were called to a club in Illinois in the early hours of Sunday morning, April 3, after a Webbie concert descended into chaos. More than 40 cops attended the Blackmon's Plaza venue in East St. Louis after gunshots were reported following the rapper's performance.

A fight is said to have broken out at the club with just two security guards struggling to control the crowd - and one of the staff was shot in the chaos. Detective Michael Floore tells The Belleville News-Democrat, "A rapper was in town and was at the club. A fight broke out inside. There were two security guards inside. At this time it appears that one guard was using his weapon on a patron that he was fighting with. And the gun went off striking the other security guard."

It is not the first time Webbie's gigs have been linked to trouble - in 2010, his failure to show up for his planned show in Texas sparked riots, while in 2008, a woman was shot in the head as she left the rapper's concert in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The same year in 2008, a man was admitted to hospital suffering from stab wounds sustained at a Webbie show in Florida.
