The gunman has since been taken to custody. Here is what Twitter user JasFly who as in attendance had to say about it:

Alright, here’s what happened: ross & Jeezy got into an actual shoving match in the parking lot. A man w/a gun was arrested. The building was temporarily shut down but is now reopened and Ross took the stage as planned. Not sure where Jeezy is. Shots have been fired. Just heard in the security walkie. We’re in lock down again. They’ve held the Lighty tribute.At least one person has been arrested but the lockdown is over.
