GloRilla‘s concert in Rochester, New York, Sunday night ended with a deadly stampede that killed one woman and injured several others.
As ABC reports, the rush occurred just after 11 p.m. following GloRilla and Finesse2Tymes‘ concert at the Main Street Armory. Rochester Police Chief David Smith says concertgoers surged toward the exit after reportedly hearing gunshots.
Three women on the scene were transported by ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital. One was pronounced dead, while the others were listed in critical condition.
Six other attendees were brought to local hospitals via private vehicles and are being treated for non-life- threatening injuries.
According to police, none of the injuries sustained after the concert appear to be the result of a shooting.
Lt. Nicholas Adams says, “There is no evidence to support a shooting having occurred inside the event.”
Law enforcement officials are investigating the incident and calling on the public to share videos and their accounts of what happened. “We are going to hold people accountable for what happened last night, period,” says Rochester Mayor Malik Evans, who called the trampling a “tragedy of epic proportions.”
GloRilla is “praying everybody is ok,” according to a recent tweet.
