Twopeople have been killed and two others injured in a shooting following the US concert of Nicki Minaj's boyfriend, rapper Meek Mill.

Wallingford Police responded to reports of shots fired outside the Oakdale Theatre in Connecticut late on Friday.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Cheryl Bradley identified the deceased as 31-year-old Travis Ward and 20-year-old Jaquan Graves, both of New Haven.


She says the incident doesn't appear to be directly related to the rapper.

Two men were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. Ms Bradley says it appears they weren't directly involved.

No one is in custody. Authorities didn't immediately release suspect information.


The Oakdale was closing when the shooting occurred.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, was recently under house arrest after violating probation for the fourth time in eight years. He and Nicki Minaj are dating.
