The alleged shooter responsible for the incident that led to the abrupt shutdown of Lil Baby concert in Memphis earlier this month has been arrested and is now facing a slew of charges, including reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of weapons and drugs, according to USA Today.
The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Kevin Young, was taken into custody on Wednesday, September 27, in connection with the concert shooting.
During his arrest, law enforcement officers discovered firearms, ammunition, and illicit substances at the location where Young was apprehended. His bond has been set at $150,000.
“During the course of the investigation, (Young) was developed as the suspect responsible for the shooting at the FedExForum on September 7, 2023,” Memphis Police Department said.
The release further noted that Kevin Young, also known as ‘Kata2tymes,’ is a documented gang member associated with the Rich and Ruthless Gang.
In addition to Young’s arrest, two other individuals present at the same location were also taken into custody and charged with various offenses unrelated to the concert shooting.
Kevin Young’s arrest is linked to the shooting incident that occurred during Lil Baby’s concert at the FedExForum in Memphis, which resulted in severe injuries to one individual.
The Memphis Police Department responded to reports of the shooting at the arena at 10:23 p.m. that night. Lil Baby was headlining the show as part of his “It’s Only Us Tour,” featuring opening acts GloRilla, Rylo Rodriguez, Gloss Up, and Hunxho.
According to reports, Lil Baby was swiftly evacuated from the stage to safety following the shooting. Video footage of the incident, circulated on social media, shows a chaotic scene unfolding on the side of the stage during Lil Baby’s performance, culminating in the sound of a gunshot.
