Steven Michael Hulbert, a 22-year old from Mississippi, was taken into custody after opening fire in the parking lot following a Jason Aldean concert Friday night. 

Tupelo police said that Hulbert fired 4 to 6 shots during an argument among a small group of men. Multiple vehicles were struck by the gunfire and one victim was shot in the chest. The victim was released from the hospital on Saturday. 

Media outlets report Hulbert is being held in the Lee County jail on $100,000 bond on aggravated assault charges. He will appear in court on Monday.

Tupelo Police were already on scene as part of security for Aldean’s concert and responded to the shots fired call. Hulbert was arrested after police stopped his vehicle before it left the parking lot.

Those still inside the arena when the shooting happened were kept inside until it was determined they could safely leave.

The shooting took place 26 days after the mass shooting in Las Vegas where Aldean was performing at the Route 91 Harvest Festival when a man started firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort. That shooting killed 58 people.
