A rap fan watching a Nas concert in London on Monday night (21MAR05) has told how he was shot in the shoulder when a balaclava-wearing gunman opened fire in the crowd.

IF I RULED THE WORLD rapper Nas - real name NASIR JONES - was midway through his set at Brixton Academy when it was brought to a sudden halt after shots rung out.

Unlucky ASHLEY BABB has revealed how he felt a burning sensation in his shoulder but didn't realise he'd been grazed by a bullet as chaos erupted all around him.

The 20-year-old says, "We thought the first shot was a firework, then another suddenly went off and pandemonium broke out.

"People were screaming and shoving and falling over and I felt this searing burning sensation on my shoulder.

"The bouncers were all shouting at us to get out and I didn't have time to get it checked. I just thought I had been burned - you don't expect to go on a night out and be shot."

Police yesterday (22MAR05) confirmed two shots had been fired. The gunman is still at large.
