Once inside, officers found several people injured, including a 33-year-old woman who “has been pronounced deceased.” Responding officers assisted medical personnel in providing care, and two people who were taken to a local hospital are “currently listed as critical, life-threatening,” according to a police statement to the media.
The statement added that six more people were taken by private vehicles to local hospitals with “non-life-threatening injuries related to this very event.” “Following further investigation, it was determined that none of the injuries sustained by any of the victims were consistent with a person being shot,” the statement also said. “At this time there is no evidence to support that a shooting occurred within the event.
“The injuries appear to be the result of a large crowd pushing towards the exits following accounts of people hearing what they believed to be gunshots,” the statement concluded.
