Deputy shoots man who fired weapon at California racetrack

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities say a man who was told no more tickets were available for an Ice Cube concert at a California racetrack was shot by a sheriff’s deputy after the man fired a gun into a crowd.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department says the man pulled the gun Sunday night at the ticket window at Del Mar Fairgrounds and fired several shots before the deputies shot him.

No other injuries were reported.

The unidentified man was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. His condition has not been released.

The racetrack tweeted less than an hour later that the situation has been contained and the concert was moving forward.
