A Young Jeezy concert was abruptly cut short after violence broke out, leaving one person shot multiple times. The Snowman was set to hit the stage in Toronto early Thursday (April 5) morning, for the latest stop on his Hustlers Ambition tour, when gun shots erupted inside the Sound Academy venue in Polson Pier.

Jeezy tweeted about the incident, and promised that he would reschedule the appearance. “Backstage @ Sound Academy in Toronto!” he wrote. “Police closed venue and cancelled the greatest show!!! I will be back! Next stop London, Ontario!”

According to police, the altercation was the result of an argument between concert-goers. The victim, a man in his 20s, was shot three times, and suffered injuries to his upper torso. He was transported to St. Michael’s Hospital, and is in stable condition. Meanwhile, authorities have yet to identify suspects in the ongoing investigation.

This isn’t the first time that a Young Jeezy concert has gotten violent. Last month, a fight broke out during at his L.A. show, at the House of Blues,  but it didn’t stop him from performing.
