In addition to the Ice Cube concert, the venue's schedule included a full day of races.

Police responded Sunday evening to reports of an officer-involved shooting at the Del Mar Racetrack in Southern California, where a concert featuring rapper Ice Cube was scheduled. After an argument ensued, Elizarraras pulled out a silver plated semi-automatic handgun and reportedly fired three shots in the air. The deputies then shot him.

Within minutes there was a heavy police presence as San Diego County deputies streamed into the track and a helicopter was seen overhead.

Sarri responded by bringing a star-studded Napoli side over to play the Cherries in a pre-season friendly last summer. The Spaniard has made rapid progress since linking up with the Blues in a £24 million ($31m) deal back in 2016.

A video posted to social media appeared to show a deputy firing four shots at a man who collapsed in front of a ticket window as bystanders exclaimed.

The sheriff's department said the alleged gunman shot by deputies was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.

In a broadcast of the track's final race of the day that was posted on Twitter, an announcer can be heard saying, "There's gunfire at the track", as horses move along the turf course, the Union-Tribune reported.

The draw was also kind on German champions Bayern Munich, although they will meet two great European names in Benfica and Ajax. The new system could cut down on the number of one-sided contests which have spoiled the group stage in recent seasons.

The exchange of gunfire occurred just before Ice Cube was set to take the stage as part of Del Mar's Summer Concert Series, his performance set to be the last show of the summer schedule.

We also are thankful for the work and training our personnel have done with the Sherriff's Department regarding possible active shooter incidents.

At 7:22 p.m., Del Mar Racetrack tweeted that the incident had been contained and that the concert was taking place as planned.
