Yo Gotti Thanks Memphis Police After Preventing Potential Mass Shooting At His Birthday Bash Concert, Suspect Wanted To “Kill Himself And Everyone He Saw Coming From The FedEx Forum”
Yo Gotti is feeling thankful after a successful concert in his hometown didn’t take a terrible turn.
Rapper Yo Gotti took to Twitter to thank his fans after his annual “Birthday Bash” concert went off without a hitch. He quickly followed up with a thank you to the Memphis Police Department after revealing there was a “potential threat” to attendees of the show.
“We were informed of a potential threat regarding an individual seeking to harm attendees leaving Birthday Bash that occurred 3 hours after our show ended.
I would also like to thank the Memphis Police Department for their swift and proactive action in ensuring that all attendees returned home safely.”
The Memphis Police Department shared more information to their Facebook regarding their response. Memphis PD reported that officers responded to an “armed mental consumer call” a few blocks from the FedEx Forum, where Yo Gotti’s “Birthday Bash” concert was being held.
The police say a man and his girlfriend after the man reportedly threatened to “kill himself and everyone he saw coming” from the FedEx Forum. He was also bleeding from his right hand after being cut from a glass window in his apartment. Police later found and confiscated several weapons in his apartment.
The man, 28-year-old Elijah Hyman was charged with the “Commission of the Act of Terrorism.”
Yo Gotti and his label, Collective Music Group (CMG) threw the 8th annual “Birthday Bash” after three years due to COVID. The event still proved to be successful, with appearances from Boosie Badazz, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Durk and CMG artists like Moneybagg Yo and newly signed GloRilla.
