In addition to the Ice Cube concert, the venue's schedule included a full day of races.

The San Diego Sheriff's Department says a man who was told no more tickets were available to an Ice Cube concert at a racetrack was shot by a sheriff's deputy after he fired his gun into a crowd.

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

At least one video posted on Twitter showed a female sheriff's deputy pull her gun and fire what sounded like four rounds after a man standing near an entrance gate is seen pointing a weapon toward the sky.

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.

The unidentified suspect was taken to a hospital.

Many concert goers left following the shooting, but Ice Cube went on as scheduled.

There were 18,000 people on hand for the Summer Concert Series at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Shots have been fired at Del Mar racecourse, with gunfire heard as horses were crossing the finish line in the final race of the day.

"We take consolation in the fact that no patrons, officers or security personnel were injured in the incident", the statement said.

We also are thankful for the work and training our personnel have done with the Sherriff's Department regarding possible active shooter incidents.

About 7:30 p.m. Pacific time, the operators of the racetrack tweeted that "the situation has been contained", and the concert would be "moving forward as planned".
