KFMB-TV says no other injuries were reported as of Sunday evening. The man pulled out a silver plated semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots into a crowded area.

Witnesses said the man had fired three shots and that sheriff's deputies had tried to stop him with a Taser before opening fire, CNN affiliate CBS 8 reported.

At 7:22 p.m., the Del Mar racetrack tweeted that the "situation has been contained" and said the concert "is moving forward as planned".

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.

"The shooting is now being investigated by the Sheriff's Homicide Unit", the department said in a statement.

Del Mar's official Twitter account said at 6:37 p.m. PT that the concert was officially "sold out". The initial shots appeared to go off near the venue's racetrack, where TVG announcers covering a race screamed out "gunfire" live on air.

Video provided by Fox San Diego showed deputies struggling with a man in a white shirt on the ground. "Deputies engaged and returned fire", the statement said.

No further details were immediately available.

According to witnesses, at the end of a race at the track the crowd was getting restless as people filed in for the Ice Cube concert that was to follow the races. In light of the circumstances that unfolded involving one individual with a gun, we take consolation in the fact that no patrons, officers or security personnel were injured in the incident.
