Police were called to a club in Illinois in the early hours of Sunday morning (03Apr11) after a Webbie concert descended into chaos.
More than 40 cops attended the Blackmon's Plaza venue in East St. Louis after gunshots were reported following the rapper's performance.
A fight is said to have broken out at the club with just two security guards struggling to control the crowd - and one of the staff was shot in the chaos.
Detective Michael Floore tells The Belleville News-Democrat, "A rapper was in town and was at the club. A fight broke out inside. There were two security guards inside. At this time it appears that one guard was using his weapon on a patron that he was fighting with. And the gun went off striking the other security guard."
It is not the first time Webbie's gigs have been linked to trouble - last year (10) his failure to show up for his planned show in Texas sparked riots, while in 2008, a woman was shot in the head as she left the rapper's concert in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The same year (08), a man was admitted to hospital suffering from stab wounds sustained at a Webbie show in Florida.
