A shooting at a gig by George Clinton And Parliament/Funkadelic last night (July 30) has left one dead and three injured, according to reports.

The music legend was performing at the Family Unity In The Park event in Cleveland, Ohio when a gunman opened fire in the crowd, reports TMZ.com.

Police apparently confirmed that a 16-year-old was shot in the head, while another was hit in the neck and two others in the leg. However, there have not yet been any arrests over the incident.

The gig formed part of George Clinton And Parliament/Funkadelic's current US tour, which is due to continue at The Handlebar in Greenville, South Carolina on Friday (August 5).

The 70-year-old's last album was 2008's 'George Clinton And His Gangsters Of Love', which featured guest appearances by Red Hot Chili Peppers and System Of A Down's Shavo Odadjian.

Clinton sued Black Eyed Peas for copyright infringement last year, claiming that they did not ask permission to use a sample from his 1979 song '(Not Just) Knee Deep' on a remix of their 2003 single 'Shut Up'.
