Wiz Khalifa Cancels California Tour Stop After Backstage Shooting

"Violence is never the answer."

Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy and their Under the Influence of Music Tour are taking the night off after a man was shot and killed backstage at their Mountain View, California, concert on Friday night.

Khalifa took to Twitter on Saturday (August 23) to announce that Saturday night’s show in Chula Vista, California will be cancelled.

According to reports, a 38-year old man was shot multiple times backstage at the Shoreline Amphitheater around 11:05 p.m., around the time that the show was ending. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died. Police are searching for the suspect and asking any one with any video or photos of the backstage area to come forward. Authorities don’t believe that the shooter or the victim had any connection to Khalifa.

Wiz sent his condolences to the victim’s family with another tweet.
