All hell broke loose last night (August 26th ) at a Wiz Khalifa concert in Indiana, leaving concertgoers in fear of their lives.
The chart-topping rapper was the headlining act at the Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville. Towards the end of his set, a fight broke out near the front of the stage, which disrupted the fans’ experience.
Things got even worse when some people thought they heard the sounds of gunshots. As a result, hundreds of patrons started running towards the exit.
“Everyone just fled the @wizkhalifa show at @ruoffmusicenter. People were screaming about shooting. We all ran out… climbed fences, did anything to get out,” said Rory Appleton, who covers pop culture for the Indy Star.
Local law enforcement policing the venue sprung into action and quickly locked down the area.
“The emergency plan was initiated and followed, and all gates, including non-public exits, were opened. Subsequently, the venue patrons self-evacuated,” a representative with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
“Police staff deployed multiple quick response teams and swept the area. No weapons were found,” the statement continued.
Three individuals were taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. So far, there have been no arrests.
The outing is part of the Vinyl Verse Tour featuring Logic, DJ Drama, and others. The tour kicked off in July and ends on September 2nd in St. Louis.
