Two people have died and eight others injured after a crowd surge erupted after a GloRilla concert that took place in Rochester, New York.
According to the concert attendees, they allegedly heard gun shots which caused a frenzy that saw everyone rush towards the exit for safety.
However, the New York police have reported that after investigations, there were no gunshots heard at the concert.
“There are some reports that shots were heard, causing the crowd to panic, but that has not been confirmed,” said police chief David M Smith.
GloRilla who had just finished performing while the incident occurred, took to her Twitter account to send love and prayers to the families of the two who died.
“I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show. My fans mean the world to me 😢praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected 🙏🏽,” read the tweet.
The police also added that after speaking to multiple attendees, they gathered that some thought that there were gunshots while others claimed there was pepper spray going round.
“Preliminary reports from people at the scene indicate that these injuries were caused from being trampled. We do not have any evidence of gunshots being fired or anyone being shot or stabbed,” Smith added.
