Two Dead, Two Injured in Shooting Outside Meek Mill Concert

Two people were killed and two others were injured in a shooting following a Meek Mill concert in Connecticut on Friday (Dec. 30).

The shooting took place outside of the Toyota Oakdale Theatre, where the Philly rapper performed.

In a statement, the Wallingford Police Department said they responded to a report of gun shots fired in the parking lot area towards the end of the performance. One subject was struck in the leg around 11:12 p.m. It is believed that some kind of fight led to the shooting.

Law enforcement officials confirmed that two people died and two were found with non-life-threatening injuries. The injured were taken to a nearby hospital. Family members identified one of the men killed as 31-year-old Travis Ward of New Haven.

Witnesses were interviewed at the scene, but no one has been apprehended and no suspects have been publicly named. According to NBC Connecticut, there was a hit-and-run in the parking lot at the time of the incident, and police are looking into whether that is connected.

“We’re looking into that evading vehicle. We have good information on that. We’re not sure if that was a suspect or somebody who for whatever reason just didn’t want to stop,” said Wallingford Police Lt. Cheryl Bradley.

Meek, who recently spent time on house arrest for violating probation on a 2009 drug and gun conviction, has not been linked to the shooting.
