  • Shooting reported at concert at Del Mar racetrack

A concert by the rapper Ice Cube was scheduled about that time at Del Mar.

Daniel Elizarraras, a 22-year-old from Escondido, became involved in an argument Sunday when he was told at the ticket window that the Ice Cube concert he wanted to attend was sold out, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

The sheriff's office said the suspect was "down" and had been taken to hospital.

When sheriff's deputies responded to the confrontation, Elizarraras pulled out "a silver-plated semi-automatic handgun" and fired "several shots" into a crowd just outside the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The deputies then shot him.

The San Diego Sheriff's department confirmed to Fox 5 that one person was injured in the shooting.

The man who was shot was taken to a nearby hospital, but his condition is unknown, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
