ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) At least 12 people were injuried during a Lil Wayne concert in Atlanta last night after an apparent “shots fired” warning from the crowd, according to police.
The rapper was about five songs into his set at the A3C Festival when members in the crowd began to flee, according to police, who said they were “unable to locate any evidence to support claims that shots were fired,” according to ABC News.
Most of the injuries were minor, according to a statement. A3C Festival organizers attributed the incident to “an altercation; no weapons were involved, according to the statement.
“Sadly, there was an altercation tonight that ended Lil Wayne’s performance,” the statement said. “This was a very unfortunate way to end what had been an otherwise amazing week of music, friendships and connections.”
“There have been approximately twelve minor injuries reported to police such as ankle injuries and lacerations from attempting to jump fences,” the department said in a statement. “The event location is being cleared out by police at this time.”
