During the rap concert taking place at the Power Ultra Lounge, gunshots rang out, an initially it was reported that more than 24 shots were fired in an 11-second period. Though two arrests have been made following the shooting, both were on unrelated charges to the shooting itself.

The 25-year-old performer was arrested on unrelated charges of aggravated assault with a gun out of Forrest City in eastern Arkansas.
