Kevin Gates was rushed off the stage, fights everywhere, word was that someone took out a gun on someone

The gunfire transpired just when Gates was about to wrap up his set around 11:30 p.m.

The Baton Rouge rapper’s security swiftly snatched him off the stage as the crowd rushed to exit the outdoor venue.

Police were on the scene to assist concert goers in exiting the event. After an investigation, police determined that the gunshots didn’t come from inside the venue, but from an adjacent neighborhood.

Fortunately, no one was injured during the concert.
