MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) – Police say a 38-year-old man has died after being shot multiple times during a concert at a popular Silicon Valley music venue.

Mountain View police spokeswoman Shino Tanaka said the shooting happened backstage at Shoreline Amphitheatre, where Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa’s performed on Friday night. The unidentified victim died at a local hospital on Saturday.

Police rushed to the outdoor concert hall after receiving multiple calls that shots had been fired there, but officers are still looking for a male suspect who is believed to be in his 20s. They are asking concert-goers for photos or videos that might provide clues.

Tanaka tells television station KTVU (http://bit.ly/1BOuxnh ) that authorities do not yet know how a gun made it into the amphitheater, where patrons undergo security screening.

Wiz Khalifa has a performance scheduled for Saturday night in Chula Vista, California.
