Video: Is Red Rocks shooting tied to Schoolboy Q's Denver dust-up with "bitch-ass nigga"?

As we've reported, authorities looking into last week's triple shooting at Red Rocks now believe the target was likely Schoolboy Q, one of the show's headliners. He was uninjured, but three other people joining him in a bullet-riddled SUV were hurt.

Now, investigators are looking at a possible connection between this incident and one from March, when Schoolboy Q got into mid-concert confrontation with an alleged "bitch-ass nigga" who inspired him to say, "I hope your mother dies tonight." See video of the dust-up below.

The show in question took place at the Ogden Theatre on March 27 -- a gig Schoolboy Q hyped with this tweet....

...and this one....

...as well as the following message and photo combo:

Despite the items seen in this Twitpic, the gig itself wasn't especially mellow. As detailed in a Reverb post published the next day, Schoolboy Q was performing when he was struck in the chest by an object thrown from the audience. He reacted by jumping into the crowd, microphone in hand, to confront the person he thought was responsible.

As seen in a video posted to YouTube, Schoolboy Q can be heard asking, "Did he throw it? Did he throw it? Don't lie to me, bruh. Did he throw it? Don't be a little bitch and start comin' and cryin', you faggot."

A moment later, Schoolboy Q is seen working his way back onto the stage, where he announces, "Whoever threw that is a bitch-ass nigga and I hope your mother dies tonight.... You're a coward. I swear to God, I hope your mother dies tonight, you coward faggot bitch."

Here's the clip.

Schoolboy Q didn't mention this incident on Twitter after the show. Instead, he saluted a couple of Denver Nuggets who'd attended:

Still, might there be a connection between this confrontation and what happened at Red Rocks? CBS4 cites a law-enforcement source as saying investigators "are looking into whether that incident might be related to the Red Rocks shooting."

Here's the CBS4 report.

If this was a free concert in Civic Center Park and I can see hecklers. This wasn't free so who is going to pay to go see someone and heckle them? That's pretty stupid and highly doubt that it was a heckler. Someone threw a bottle and Q being the dick he is doesn't get this person kicked out of the concert no god forbid he act like a fucking human. He tells the crowd he hopes their mother dies. The way I see it is it's a damn shame the bullet missed him...

To a heckler? He had it coming. Denver's notorious for its hecklers. Don't dish it out if you can't take it.

You know black people laugh at wiggers like you? You're not a bad ass. I'm not saying I am, but I can at least admit that I'm out of my element when I find myself there. You're really just a sad little boy who thinks it's Halloween everyday and you get out of bed, put on your little gangsta costume, get your thug accent out and head for the mall. How sweet. If you ended up on real gangsta turf, they would gut you. Sweetheart.

@Eli - Nice try, my friend. First I said FRANTI and Cheese, not Phish. Second, the Lucas Piper story is about violence that occurred AFTER a show, not AT it...hence my ORIGINAL statement. Now, would you like me to go and find the hundreds upon hundreds of violence-associated news stories pertaining to NON jamband concerts? Really good effort, though...

Wow. Can't maintain composure, leading to verbally fighting over a post...Children I Will Pull This Car Over! Not surprised people can't rein it in, leading to unnecessary violence.

I'm loving the mix of people saying rap and hip hop isn't 'real music' and the incoherent ramblings of butt hurt 16 year olds who think they're thugs. Everyone is an idiot.

for the record you don't have to think you're a thug or act like one to speak up against you fucking idiots, you just have to have half a brain and be man. Real people don't expect for people to get killed cause they don't like their music. You same fucking idiots pray on everyone whose better off than you's downfall. Keep up the hope act-

It's funny everyone thinks your a wannabe thug simply because you don't listen to a bunch if broke low life's claim schoolboy should've been shot. He should've have? Does that piss y'all racist losers off? I'm glad. Quit saying shit like he should've been shot cause his lyrics are weak etc and people like me would never say shit. But y'all motherfuckers jump at the opportunity to be racist ignorant and a keyboard thug"" as well. Deez nuts unless you fuck with schoolboy
