Trey Songz and 2 others shot at Las Vegas concert released from hospital

On Monday, the Las Vegas police department announced that the three men who were shot at a concert in Las Vegas on Sunday night were the same four people, who were later identified as R&B singer Trey Songz and two unidentified male fans.

According to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) spokesperson, the name of the suspect has not been released yet.

“Suspect is still on the loose and has not been arrested as of this release,” said LVMPD spokesman Jose Hernandez. The intersection of Lomas and Tropicana roads, where the shooting occurred, is a popular nightlife destination for the city’s nightlife industry, and is lined with restaurants, nightclubs, and a strip club.

Trey Songz, who rose to fame after starring on a 2006 episode of the UPN drama “Girlfriends,” released a statement shortly after he was discharged from the hospital:

“Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and well wishes. I am greatly grateful to have survived this situation. I want to thank everyone for their continued support and understanding as I recuperate from my injuries. We have no additional details at this time and thank you for respecting our privacy.”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the shooter entered the The Chelsea, the club owned by Omnia nightclub owner Micky Arison and located next to the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. The front door of the club opened at 8 p.m. on Sunday, and gunfire erupted just seconds later.

The victims — a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old man — suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest, officials say. The victim who was shot in the head was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition, while the second man was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg and is expected to be OK.

In a statement to Nevada newspaper, The Review-Journal, Greater Las Vegas United Way President Sharon Stenner said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and our precious dead.”

At the invitation of East Coast crime scene investigators, a team of family members and friends of the victims offered their condolences to Songz on social media.
