One dead, 8 injured at GloRilla concert in Rochester New York


One person is dead and eight others injured after false reports of gunfire that sparked a stampede at a GloRilla concert in Rochester, New York, on Sunday night.

The incident happened at the Main Street Armory where Hip Hop Artists GloRilla and Finesse2tymes performed.

According to Rochester Police Department, fans thought they heard shots fired inside the concert venue. “No evidence to support a shooting having occurred,” Lt. Nicholas Adams said.

A 33-year-old woman died. Two are in critical condition, according to Rochester Police Department.

Early Monday morning, GloRilla took to Twitter and tweeted that she was “just now hearing about what happened.”

“Praying everybody is okay,” GloRilla said.

“The injuries appear to be as a result of a large crowd pushing towards the exits following accounts of individuals hearing what they believed to be gunshots,” Adams said.

It is still unknown what could have made fans think someone was shooting.

In 2021, Travis Scott was held responsible after he settled a lawsuit filed by families that left 10 people dead at Astroworld.

Will they do GloRilla like Travis Scott?
