Barclay’s Center Denies Shots Were Fired at Future’s Concert
by Mike Winslow
(AllHipHop News) Venue officials in Brooklyn, New York have denied reports suggesting rapper Future’s concert ended in gun violence over the weekend, insisting no shots were fired.
Fans were heading home after the “Jumpman” hitmaker’s Nobody Safe Tour stop at the Barclays Center when a series of loud noises, which many believed to be gunshots, rang out, causing a stampede as people ran for safety.
Many took to social media to document the incident, with images surfacing of emergency medical technicians taking a man on a stretcher to an ambulance parked outside the venue.
However, Barclays Center bosses quickly cleared up the confusion in a post on Twitter.
“There were no gunshots tonight inside the arena,” they wrote. “A loud noise during load out caused concern while fans exited the venue. Get home safely.”
New York Police Department officials have also confirmed they received no reports of gunfire after the show.
