  • Del Mar Racetrack in California

Gunfire rang out during the 10th and final televised horse race at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club on Sunday evening.

Just before 6:40 p.m., a man came to the ticket window at the Del Mar Fairgrounds at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard. The deputies then shot him.

The alleged shooter was reportedly taken down by police before being rushed to hospital with gun shot wounds.

According to witnesses, at the end of a race at the track the crowd was getting restless as people filed in for the Ice Cube concert that was to follow the races.

At least one video posted on Twitter showed a female sheriff's deputy pull her gun and fire what sounded like four rounds after a man standing near an entrance gate is seen pointing a weapon toward the sky.

Following the shooting, the concert moved "forward as planned", the racetrack said.




The shooting took place during the 10th race.

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

No other details were immediately available, and police are yet to release any information on the incident. Passing concert-goers can be heard shouting expletives after the shooting. TVG documented the shooting while calling a race with a broadcaster repeatedly saying: "There is gunfire at the track".

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.

"We take consolation in the fact that no patrons, officers or security personnel were injured in the incident", the statement said.
