Hours before taking the stage at Moline’s TaxSlayer Center on Friday (Mar. 25), Korn’s tour bus was struck by gunfire overnight, outside the Blackhawk Hotel in Iowa.

According to WWLP, “On Friday, March 25, at approximately 7:42 a.m., Davenport Police responded to the 200 block of East Fourth Street (outside Hotel Blackhawk) in reference to the report of a bus that had been struck by overnight gunfire.”

The outlet also reported that upon the officers’ arrival to the scene of the crime, they confirmed that the tour bus, which was parked curbside on a city street, sustained damage from a single gunshot, which reportedly pierced the exterior wall of the bus and entered into the bus’ inner cabin.

“A source familiar with the situation tells us the bullet pierced the exterior wall of the bus and was found inside the cabin. The saving grace here is that no one was on board at the time of the shooting,” according to TMZ.

There are several buses a part of the Korn tour and it is unclear if the bus belongs to Korn, another band on the tour (Chevelle or Code Orange), or the tour staff, however, it has been confirmed that the tour bus is part of the tour.

Luckily, it has been reported that the California natives were not on the bus at the time of the shooting and all members of the band and crew are safe.

No injuries or further damages were reported, and the incident remains under investigation.
