Over the weekend, Wiz Khalifa’s “Under the Influence of Music” tour rolled through Northern California. At Friday’s show at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, 38-year-old local Eric Johnson was shot backstage, dying from injuries the following morning. Since the incident, Young Jeezy has been arrested by local authorities with bail set at $1 million dollars.

According to The SF Gate:

The investigation that led to the arrests began after 38-year-old Eric Johnson of Orinda was shot multiple times at the concert. Johnson, who died Saturday at a hospital, was shot in the backstage area of the large venue, police said. On Sunday, Mountain View detectives executed search warrants at the Verizon Amphitheatre in Irvine, at another Wiz Khalifa concert, officials said.

After discovering an assault weapon, authorities arrested Jeezy and five others. All six were booked in the Orange County Jail.
