  • Shooting reported at concert at Del Mar racetrack

A sheriff's deputy shot a man who reportedly fired his weapon into the air Sunday evening at a horse-racing track, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Sheriffs then tasered the suspect and opened fire when tasering couldn't contain him. The wounded suspect was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition, the report said.

The concert was scheduled to follow a full slate of horse races at the track, the station reported.

As the field for the race pulled up past the finish, TVG host Todd Schrupp exclaimed, "There's gunfire at the track".

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.

It has been reported by several local news outlets that a sheriff's deputy was shot but no civilians were injured in the incident.
