DENVER (AP) — Authorities say they believe a shooting involving rapper ScHoolboy Q after a concert at the historic Red Rocks amphitheater west of Denver was not a random act of violence.

Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, said Saturday that "this is not just a coincidence. We think there is probably more to it than that."

The rapper was not hurt in Thursday night's shooting, but three other people in the vehicle he was in sustained non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made, but Kelley says investigators have received numerous tips.

ScHoolboy Q, whose birth name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, is from Los Angeles. His most recent album, "Oxymoron," debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member.
