Kentucky police are searching for 2014 XXL Freshmen Kevin Gates after a shooting occurred at his Lexington show early Sunday morning. Thankfully, no one was killed but one patron suffered non-life threatening issues and others suffered minor injuries after being crushed by the crowd rushing toward the exits. Despite the shooting, Luca Brasi didn’t stop the show and jumped in the crowd to perform three more songs for fans who stuck around. According to TMZ, Cops are seeking Gates for questioning since they believe he had a clear view of the shooting from the stage. At the moment, Gates has remained silent about the incident to both cops and the press. XXL reached out to Gates and his team and are waiting on a response.
Kevin Gates has had a controversial start to 2015. In early January, Gates caught the attention of nearly every major media outlet after he claimed via an Instagram post that he was having sex with his cousin. The news caused quite a stir and Gates proceeded to delete his entire Instagram history. On the music front, Gates found success with his Luca Brasi 2 mixtape and he is gearing up to go on tour.
