E-40 Concert Ends With A Bang

Contributed by knowledge024:

The E-40 Concert held in Kansas City at Swope Park ended with gunshots fired within the crowd just moments after the artist left the stage. While exiting the concert, I saw people part like the red seas. At this point I knew the deal, someone had a gun. In the single blink of an eye 2 shots rang out; followed by screams and people ducking for cover. Within 10 minutes of the initial gunshots, there were several more as if a gunbattle was taking place (most likely between the gunman and KCPD Swat who were on the scene the entire night).
