Exclusive Details


Rich Homie Quan says he and his crew had NOTHING TO DO with the shooting death of a fan at his rap concert in Ohio this weekend ... but says he will be reaching out to the family of the deceased.

The rapper was on stage performing his hit, "Type of Way" at the Red Zone bar in Columbus around 2:30 AM Sunday morning when someone in the crowd fired several gunshots ... striking and killing a 24-year-old man.

Footage of the incident was posted to ... you can hear the gunshots ring out and someone in the crowd screams, "not again" and "lay down."

Quan tells TMZ ... "It’s sad to hear that someone died especially during the holiday season. I just want everybody to know me nor anybody in my crew or affiliation had anything to do with the shooting in Ohio."

He adds, "We will be reaching out to the family of the deceased"

There was also a fatal shooting the last time RHQ played at the Red Zone ... back on Nov. 9th a man was shot twice in the back in the early hours of the morning after the rap concert.

City officials are reportedly calling for the state to strip Red Zone of its liquor license.

I had to hear what this smash hit sounded like and yes sir its just the same sounding hood ratkrap like the rest. Don't anyone even try to sound unique anymore? Or is it just too much effort? It all suks.

What's with rap and all the killing? I guess if you're a rap fan and don't want to die you shouldn't go to a concert. At least not this guy's concerts. And he was performing at 2:30 am? Isn't that a little late? It's not Vegas.

"City officials are reportedly calling for the state to strip Red Zone of its liquor licence" Yeah that will prevent future shootings.... Clearly I'm not as smart as city officials, maybe install metal detectors or security guards with hand held metal scanners, that seems to work for airports in preventing people getting shot!!

Still rockin' the gold chains, I see. Isn't this about 20 years out of date? Maybe it's considered a classic look now. Never goes out of style? At least not in the ghetto, I guess.

""It’s sad to hear that someone died ESPECIALLY during the holiday season". Piss poor attempt of public relations. I can't believe someone would say that. They're probably wondering, "Duh, I was trying to act like we cared"
FAMILY: "Why did they have to kill him now, couldn't they have waited until after New Years"
I'm sure whoever wrote that is so ghetto stupid that they truely don't get it since half of their family either has either HIV/AIDS, in prison or shot.
