False reports of active shooter leads to pandemonium at Rolling Loud Festival

on May 11, 2019, 6:32pm

Reports of an active shooter led to pandemonium at Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival on Friday night.

Though it was ultimately determined to be a false alarm, several festival-goers were injured in a stampede towards the exits.

“Shortly after 11pm on Friday night, there was a disturbance that led a large group of fans to believe there was an active shooter within the festival grounds,” Rolling Loud organizers said in a statement. “The commotion resulted in these fans running out of the venue, some of whom were injured and/or scared in the process.”

“Security and public authorities immediately sprung into action, established it was a false alarm and there was not an active shooter in the festival.”

Following a brief delay, Rolling Loud proceeded “as planned.” Yesterday’s lineup featured performances from Migos, Cardi B, Rae Sremmurd, Rick Ross, and more.
