There was a chilling reminder of the Astroworld tragedy on Saturday night in Vegas, when the stampede erupted after people thought they heard gunshots, trampling several people.
The Las Vegas City Police Department told TMZ… “Shortly after 10 p.m., there was reportedly a shooting near the site of the Lovers & Friends Festival, causing a large group of attendees to flee the venue. At this time, there is no evidence in A shooting incident and the initial report was deemed baseless. Three people were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, and the show has since resumed.”
The show was part of the Lovers & Friends Festival, a weekend event presented by Live Nation. I came down at the Las Vegas Festival grounds. Artists included Lauren HillAnd LudacrisAnd night johnAnd MarioAnd Monicaand TLC.
