Authorities say they believe a shooting involving Los Angeles 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's most recent album, "Oxymoron," debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member. His birth name is Quincy Matthew Hanley.
