Del Mar racetrack shooting: Gunfire heard at prestigious California racetrack

A concert featuring Ice Cube was expected to go on as scheduled following a shooting Sunday evening in Del Mar Calif

Ice Cube, who once rapped "shotgun bullets is bad for yo' health", was due to perform at San Diego's Del Mar Racecourse on Sunday.

A male suspect has been injured after a sheriff's deputy shot him when he opened fire in a mid-race shooting at Del Mar track in California.

- A San Diego sheriff's's deputy shot a man at the Del Mar racetrack who officials say pulled out a gun and fired it at the ticket window after he learned that rapper Ice Cube's concert had been sold out.

"An argument ensued", the sheriff said in a statement.

A video of the shooting that was posted on Twitter records the sounds of several shots being fired before a man falls to the ground.

Authorities said a man fired his gun near the race track and a deputy returned fire.

The department says the man was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. He was taken to a local hospital where he is expected to survive his injuries.

The announcer who is calling the race is heard saying, "There's gunfire at the track!".

The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club said in a statement that under its special events protocol, substantial law enforcement and private security were on site during the event.

At 7:22 p.m., Del Mar Racetrack tweeted that the incident had been contained and that the concert was taking place as planned.

We will continue to fully cooperate with the Sherriff's Department in their investigation and will refer all questions concerning the incident to them.

Officers were seen racing to the popular venue.
