  • Shooting breaks out at California's Del Mar race track

No other injuries were reported.

The sheriff's department said that Elizarraras went up to the ticket window of the Thoroughbred Club on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. and was told that there were no more tickets left for Ice Cube's concert.

A sheriff's deputy on Sunday shot a man who appeared to be firing a weapon into the air outside a gate leading into a scheduled Ice Cube concert at the Del Mar Racetrack.

Deputies returned fire, the sheriff said.

The alleged shooter was reportedly taken down by police before being rushed to hospital with gun shot wounds. Commentators screamed "there's gunfire at the track", before abandoning their posts and fleeing.

His condition was not immediately available.

The concert, for which tickets were sold out, was scheduled to follow a full slate of horse races at the track, the station reported. A video of the incident that was posted on Twitter records the sounds of several shots being fired before a man falls to the ground.

Shots have been fired at Del Mar racecourse, with gunfire heard as horses were crossing the finish line in the final race of the day.

Ice Cube responded Monday to a fan who tweeted about the shooting that took place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds last night.

About 7:30 p.m. Pacific time, the operators of the racetrack tweeted that "the situation has been contained", and the concert would be "moving forward as planned".

"We take consolation in the fact that no patrons, officers or security personnel were injured in the incident", the statement said.
