Police arrested a man who threatened to kill people who attended Yo Gotti’s birthday concert featuring surprise guests Boosie Badazz, Lil Durk and Lil Uzi Vert Friday night in Memphis. No one was injured.

“We were informed of a potential threat regarding an individual seeking to harm attendees leaving Birthday Bash that occurred 3 hours after our show ended,” Gotti tweeted Saturday. 

“I would also like to thank the Memphis Police Department for their swift and proactive action in ensuring that all attendees returned home safely,” the “Rake it Up” rapper added. “Thank you to the fans, artists and everyone involved behind the scenes for making Birthday Bash a smooth, secure and successful event.” 

The birthday concert at the FedEx Forum, titled Yo Gotti and Friends, was streamed live on Twitch TV.

Elijah Hyman, 28, was charged with commission of the act of terrorism early Saturday morning, police told ABC Memphis affiliate WATN-TV.

Police say that Hyman had broken up with his girlfriend, and he wanted to kill himself and “everyone he saw coming from an event being held at the FedEx Forum.” Several weapons were found at his apartment.
