One person was killed and three others were shot after a fight broke out following a George Clinton concert in Cleveland last night, police tell TMZ.

Clinton performed at something called the eighth annual "Unity in the Park" festival, a free, day-long music event, which featured George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic as the headlining act.

According to police, four people suffered bullet wounds after someone opened fire in the crowd. A 16-year-old was shot in the head, a 20-year-old was shot in the neck, and a 14 and 23-year-old were shot in the leg. They were all transported to a local hospital for injuries.

Police would not say which of the four shooting victims died. 

No arrests have been made.

My mother told me, "There is safety in numbers". I am sorry to say that is no longer true. WTF is the matter with some people?

Pretty sad that this could happen at a George Clinton concert. Next to maybe Phish (or in the past the Grateful Dead) I can't really think of another artist where I'd expect the audience to be so high on weed that everyone would be too mellow to do anything to anyone.

Shootings at shows like this seem to happen with a predominantly black audience. I'm not racist, this is just a fact. You never hear about incidences like this where the attendees are not mostly black. Why would anyone bring a gun to a concert? They probably went to the show just to kill people. No way they brought a gun for defense. What are they defending, it's a freaking concert. Shows like this become one mini-jungle and the animals are at it once again.

Anyone want to guess the ethnicity of the shooter/shootees?

Don't you just love your minorities? They add so much to the quality of life and culture of our Nation.

Pisses me off to hear the comments of the racist people on this site but at the same time so much of what they say is true. I am a black male and I hate to say it but I agree with alot of the ignorant statements to some extent. It truly is sad that when you get a large number of black people together sh$t like this tends to happen. Like the one comment said tho...ni$$ers show up. All black people don't behave in this manor there are f$ck ups in every race not just with blacks so it would be nice if people would relieze that and stop putting all blacks in one box together because we don't belong in one box anymore than any other race. It's not fair nor accurate to assume that just because you see some blacks acting like this that all blacks are like this..to believe that is to be ignorant.

Its unfortunate then you are the MINORITY of young blacks, or hispanic, who are good law abiding citizen but facts are facts most young blacks are either selling drugs, in the gangs, in the prisons, or just spreading their seed all over and who is supporting the children? (taxpayers) young black woman are no better, making babies to go on welfare for their generational ways of life...young hispanics are a close 2nd I dont hate all minorities, but i am sick of most of them. the bad ones outnumber the good ones by far. and that is why racism is alive and well today. the only time i have seen black women move fast is when the welfare system has openings for section 8 and all of their fat asses move well then.
