Mountain View Police

Young Jeezy has been caught up in some legal crossfire.

The rapper is one of five people who have been arrested in the course of the investigation into a fatal shooting at Wiz Khalifa's show Friday at the Verizon Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif.

Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, has been busted on a weapons charge after a search of his tour bus turned up a firearm, according to the Mountain View Police Department, and as of this evening he was reportedly being held on $1 million bail.

The other men arrested were Kena Marshall, Peter Maynard, David Kuniansky-Altman, William Gilmore and Alexa Beason, according to police.

No one has been arrested in the killing of 38-year-old Eric Johnson, of Orinda, Calif.

"This remains an active homicide investigation and MVPD detectives are aggressively following up on all leads," the MVPD said in a press release. Authorities said that they received calls at 11:05 p.m. on Friday about gunshots fired at the concert venue. Johnson, who had been shot multiple times, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
