- 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.

The shooting took place during the 10th race.

According to an eyewitness, deputies had just broken up a fight outside of the admission gate when a man pulled out a handgun, pointed toward the sky and shot one or two rounds into the air.

Rider Drayden Van Dyke, was thrown from his spooked steed during the gunfire.

The race track later tweeted that the situation was contained, and the concert would go on as scheduled. He wanted a ticket to this evening's concert.

Sheriff's deputies responded by returning fire, hitting Elizarraras multiple times in the torso and arm.




A witness posted video from near the entrance to the fairgrounds with audio of gunshots and video of police surrounding a man rolling on the ground.

Sheriff's deputies received reports of gunfire at the fairgrounds at around 7 p.m. He was taken to a local hospital where he is expected to survive his injuries. No one else is believed to have been injured in the incident.

No further details were immediately available.

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.

As is our special events protocol, substantial law enforcement and private security was on site in anticipation of the event.
