A Jason Aldean fan was hospitalized with a gunshot wound after attending the country superstar’s concert Friday night (July 27) in Raleigh, N.C. According to local TV station WRAL, the shooting occurred as concertgoers were attempting to leave the parking lot after the show. Luckily, the victim’s injuries are not life threatening.

“There’s no excuse 4 things getting that heated in traffic leavin a show,” Jason tweeted over the weekend. “I’m prayin 4 the fan who was injured and thanx to the Raleigh police for acting so quickly.”

The incident forced those trying to leave to wait for over an hour before they could finally exit the area. “They weren’t letting anybody in or out,” a concert attendee told WRAL. “It was horrific. We were stopped the entire time. We couldn’t get out of there.”

Police are still searching for the gunman. Anyone with information is urged to call 919-834-5357.

Jason will continue his tour this week with a performance at WE Fest in Minn., followed by shows in Ohio and Florida. See his tour schedule here.
