LONDON – Two concert-hall ushers were shot during a Kanye West show, police said Wednesday.
West Midlands Police said the men were wounded at the National Exhibition Center, near Birmingham in central England, on Tuesday as several people were being ejected from the venue for trying to get in without tickets.
"Firearms were discharged and two stewards were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds," police said in a statement. "Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening," police said in a statement.
The concert was the last stop in Britain on West's "Touch the Sky" tour. The 27-year-old rapper was scheduled to perform Thursday in Milan, Italy.
