Update: GloRilla Reacts After 1 Person Dead, 9 Injured At NY Concert

Authorities confirmed that a 33-year-old woman died and nine others injured with two in critical condition following a stampede at Glorilla and Finesse2Tymes show in Rochester, New York


Update: Authorities confirmed that one person is dead and at least nine injured during the stampede at Glorilla and Finesse2Tymes concert in Rochester, NY, on Sunday night.

According to Police Chief David M. Smith at a press conference on Monday, the dead person is a 33 year-old woman, who was trampled in the stampede. “What began last night as a night of live music and fun for the performer GloRilla ended in tragedy with one person dead and two more fighting for their lives,” the chief said, via the Associated Press.

Smith also said the reports of gunshots appears to be a false alarm that triggered the stampede that also left nine injuries with two of the injured in critical condition.

Several people were reportedly injured while attending a concert in Rochester, New York, to see CMG artist, GloRilla, perform on Sunday (March 5) night. There have been no official reports from authorities about the incident or the victims and their condition, but reports surfaced early on Monday morning (March 6) from several fans of the artist who attended the event that an unknown number of persons were trampled with serious injuries reported. At least one concertgoer tweeted that there were four deaths as a result of the stampede.

“4 individuals were trampled to death at Glorilla concert tonight rip to those who lost their life,” one tweet reads.

A woman in a video could be heard discussing with another woman that it had nothing to do with guns or violence but that there was a stampede.

“The one b***ch pissed on herself…no bullets, no nothing. Mother***kers got trampled and died,” the woman said, adding that this is the last time she will attend events in Rochester.

GloRilla addressed the incident on her Twitter account shortly after midnight following reports on social media.

“I’m just now hearing about what happened wtf praying everybody is ok,” she wrote on Twitter.

GloRilla and Finesse 2 Tymes headlined the show held at 900 East Main Street. Some concertgoers took to Twitter to share that the incident happened following a shooting, while others say there were three victims taken to hospital following CPR while another person was reportedly stabbed.

There are photos shared showing heavy police presence at Main Street Armory, where the event was held, and police have since blocked off East Main Street.

On Twitter, one man said his brother got trampled at the event and broke his leg.
