If you thought Suge Knight getting shot at a pre-VMA party was the only incident of hip hop-related violence over the weekend, you were sadly mistaken.

A man was shot five times and killed during a Wiz Khalifa performance outside of San Jose, Calif., on Saturday.

Following the shooting, police obtained a warrant to search the bus belonging to Wiz's touring partner, Young Jeezy.

TMZ reports that cops found an unregistered assault rifle and immediately took the Jeezy into custody.

The rapper is currently being held behind bars with bail set at $1 million.

It is not believed that Jeezy himself is a suspect in the murder, but police may suspect that someone in his entourage helped to instigate the violence.

Even if Jeezy is found to be in no way involved with the murder, he could still be in some serious trouble for the unlicensed weapon.

Fellow rapper Lil Wayne was imprisoned for similar charges in 2009 and ended serving a year behind bars.

Considering Jeezy's history of legal troubles - he might not be so young by the time he's released.
