As the last of a crowd of about 1,000 people were leaving a hip hop concert at The House Of Blues, in River North, early Saturday morning, shots rang out.

Police responding to related 911 calls found a man less than a block from the venue who had been shot, apparently in the buttocks, according to police dispatch reports.

It's unclear if the victim or the at large shooter were attending the Drake and Sly Polaroid show at the House of Blues prior to the shooting or not.
