A Foogiano show in South Carolina last night went left when a gunman opened fire.
The authorities say that groups of people were throwing gang signs in The Lavish nightclub in Greenville prior to the shooting.
Multiple concert-goers said they observed a man trying to snatch Foogiano -- who's signed to Gucci Mane's -- chain. This is said to have prompted a member of Foogiano's entourage to start firing.

According to sheriff Hobart Lewis, investigators are "hearing five different stories."
51-year-old club security guard Clarence Sterling Johnson was killed as was 23-year old mother-of-two Mykala Bell, who was described as the "definition of an innocent bystander." Eight others were injured.
