Crowd Stampede at GloRilla Concert Leaves One Dead and Nine Others Injured

    A crowd stampede broke out at a GloRilla show in Rochester, New York on Sunday night (March 5), leaving one person dead and nine others injured, The Associated Press reports.

    Rochester police lieutenant Nicholas Adams told CNN that officers arrived at around 11 pm following false reports of a shooting at Main Street Armory theater, where GloRilla was performing with Memphis rapper Finesse2tymes. Although they found no evidence to suggest a shooting had occurred, “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.

    A 33-year-old woman was killed in the incident and two other women remain in hospital in a critical condition. Seven others were also treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

    “I’m just now hearing about what happened wtf,” GloRilla tweeted late Sunday night. “Praying everybody is ok.”
