MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A man was shot during a Lil Baby concert at FedExForum on Thursday night.

Memphis police responded to the venue located at 191 Beale Street at 10:23 p.m.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to the hospital in critical condition but has since been upgraded to non-critical.

At this time, the identity of the shooter is unknown. Police say the shooting was premeditated and the victim was targeted.

No other injuries were reported, and the Forum was evacuated.

“The FedExForum contracts with a private security company that screens patrons for weapons. It is unknown, at this time, how the suspect was able to circumvent the security screening process,” Memphis Police said in a statement.
