Local News station KCRA is reporting that a man has died after an assault during a KSFM-presented hip-hop festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. While queuing for food during the festival this weekend, the man was attacked and was found unresponsive after taking a punch. The man was later pronounced dead at the hospital following his injuries, with Sacramento police announcing that an investigation is underway.
The police are still searching for the person responsible for the man’s death, which occurred on Sunday. During the same day of the festival, a propane tank located in the food vendor area exploded after getting too hot. Numerous people suffered burn injuries from the explosion, while many others were injured after people at the festival attempted to run away from the explosion en masse in a panic. The events that took place were unrelated to one another.
The festival featured the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Kehlani, Desiigner, The Internet, and E-40 among others performing. Despite both of the unfortunate events, the sold-out festival continued as planned. For more information regarding the possible suspect behind the attack, check out KCRA’s report here.
