DEL MAR–Sheriff’s deputies Sunday shot an armed suspect who fired a gun into the air because couldn’t get tickets to the Ice Cube concert that evening.
Just before 6:40 p.m., a man came to the ticket window at the Del Mar Fairgrounds at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard. He wanted a ticket to the concert. He was told no more tickets were available.
An argument ensued and nearby deputies responded. The man pulled out a silver-plated semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots into a crowded area. Deputies engaged and returned fire.
The suspect was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and his condition is unknown at this time. No one else was injured.
