TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — A rapper who was to perform at an Arizona nightclub until a shootout outside left 14 people wounded says his thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of “this senseless act of violence.”

Rapper Nipsey Hussle issued a statement over the weekend saying he strongly opposes gun violence, and that his fans know he represents “nothing but peace and progress through hard work.”

“I grew up on the streets of south central Los Angeles and have witnessed many tragedies in my lifetime,” Hussle said. “I never glorify any situation like this and think it is disgusting.”

Meanwhile, the search continued Sunday for two suspects in Friday night’s shooting outside The Clubhouse Music Venue in Tempe.

At least 250 people were lined up outside the venue when three men began arguing and opened fire at one another, authorities said.

Fourteen people were wounded, but police said all were expected to survive. Twelve had relatively minor injuries, while two were seriously hurt.

Police arrested one of the three suspects later that night. Investigators said they believe all three are affiliated with Phoenix-area gangs.
