Wiz Khalifa's concert near San Jose, CA Friday night turned deadly ... when a man was shot to death ... TMZ has learned.

The concert was at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.  We're told just after 11 last night ... shot's rang out as Wiz performed.

One source tells TMZ ... the victim was shot backstage and was hit at least 5 times.

Police told us the victim died.

Cops are investigating and looking for witnesses.  We've learned there are indeed people who saw the shooting but as far as we know they have not yet spoken to cops.

The shooter is still on the loose.

10:05 AM PST:  An eyewitness tells TMZ ... the gunman and the victim were backstage arguing before shots were fired.  It was at the very end of the show and Wiz was still on stage.  The 2 men were in a dark hallway and we're told even the surveillance video would probably be unhelpful.

The people backstage were all held by cops for 3 - 4 hours ... most were interviewed.

Cops tell us ... they don't believe the shooter or the victim had any connection to Wiz.

I wonder what sharpton and Jackson are going to say about this... Especially if we learn it was a black guy shooting and killing another black guy. I know what they will say. Nothing. They won't say anything because that doesn't help their agenda of hatred against whites. It is sad. Sharpton and Jackson only think a black life is worth something when killed by a white. If a black life is killed by another black ( like what happens all the time in Chicago ) then it isn't even worth their time to comment on it. So sad.

This is the belief in USA that gun kill not people!!!! The good side of this shooting is that one person had some weight add to his body five slugs. The young children where spared in a school. No!!! need for new gun law, there will be no one to shot in the near future. The gun owners will have to turn the barrel up so they can see the hole in the barrel. Bang Bang one less gun owner. Sorry just one Bang.

Glad they quit rioting and got back to normal neegro activities, shooting each other. Gonna be difficult to blame this one on white society but they will figure some way to do that.
