  • Del Mar Racetrack in California

"An argument ensued", the sheriff said in a statement.

Authorities said a man fired his gun near the race track and a deputy returned fire. The man, identified as 22-year-old Daniel Elizarraras, was taken to hospital and is expected to survive, the San Diego Sheriff's Department stated.

The concert was scheduled to follow a full slate of horse races at the track, the station reported.

The San Diego Sheriff's department confirmed to Fox 5 that one person was injured in the shooting.

When sheriff's deputies responded to the confrontation, Elizarraras pulled out "a silver-plated semi-automatic handgun" and fired "several shots" into a crowd just outside the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Twitter videos were shared showing TVG's on-air coverage of a race at the track and an announcer could be heard shouting "there is gun fire at the track".

His condition was not immediately available. TVG documented the shooting while calling a race with a broadcaster repeatedly saying: "There is gunfire at the track".

The incident at Del Mar Fairgrounds occurred at approximately 7pm (local time), just before the commencement of an Ice Cube concert following the raceday.

Ambulances and helicopters were also seen shortly after the shooting.

Del Mar's official Twitter account said at 6:37 p.m. PT that the concert was officially "sold out".

We will continue to fully cooperate with the Sherriff's Department in their investigation and will refer all questions concerning the incident to them.
