(Newser) – Three people were shot in the parking lot of Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre last night after a concert featuring Nas, Schoolboy Q, and Flying Lotus, authorities say. The victims, all of whom survived, were found in nearby Denver, where they apparently drove after the shooting, the Denver Post reports; it's unclear why they did so. Two other passengers were in the SUV, and are cooperating with the investigation.

Red Rocks was put on lockdown after the shooting; concertgoers' cars were searched; and as of this reporting, no suspects had yet been arrested. The concert was, in part, a benefit for a local gang-rescue and support project. The shootings did not appear random, an official tells the AP.
