Man shot after pulling gun outside Ice Cube concert, sheriff says

Elizarraras was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla in stable condition and is expected to survive his injuries.

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. Van Dyke tumbled several times after hitting the ground, lay motionless briefly, then got up on his own power and walked to the ambulance. The shooting took place near the TVG set to the west of the paddock.

San Diego's FOX 5 reported that a San Diego Sheriff's Department deputy had shot a suspect near the racetrack entrance. Passing concert-goers can be heard shouting expletives after the shooting.

CBS 8 in San Diego reports that the shooting occurred toward the end of the race day as fans were transitioning to attend a free Ice Cube concert at the Del Mar Fairgrounds that was part of an ongoing summer concert series in tandem with horse races. He wanted a ticket to this evening's concert.

When deputies responded to the scene just before 7 p.m., Elizarraras allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots into the air in a crowded area.

Cops say 22-year-old Daniel Elizarraras was at the legendary track Saturday in San Diego County where the horses were racing and a Cube concert was to follow. Nobody else except the suspect was injured in the incident.

The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club said in a statement that under its special events protocol, substantial law enforcement and private security were on site during the event.
