The gunman, who escaped on foot, is still on the loose.
The names of the shot men were not released. All are expected to survive, and one of the three victims was released from a local hospital on Friday, authorities said.
The shooting happened at about 10:30 p.m. local time, just moments after the end of a concert featuring popular hip-hop acts Nas, Flying Lotus and ScHoolboy Q.
The SUV drove away from the scene after the shooting but were stopped by Denver police at a nearby intersection, where the victims were taken to a hospital for treatment, Kelley said. ScHoolboy Q was briefly detained for questioning but he was not arrested and is not a suspect.
ScHoolboy Q, a native of Los Angeles, reassured his fans Friday that he was OK, posting on Twitter: “im str8 … don’t trip.”
