A tragic panic erupted out this weekend during a GloRilla performance with Finesse2Tymes in upstate New York, killing one and critically injuring two more. The "F.N.F. (Let's Go)" rapper and Bread Gang signee were performing at Main Street Armory in Rochester, NY this weekend when bullets were fired, according to reports.
The venue panicked, according to Democrat And Chronicles, resulting in a swarm of individuals attempting to find their way out. According to police, 9 individuals were hurt at the 5,000-person capacity stadium.

Three persons were brought to Strong Memorial Hospital by ambulance after police arrived on the scene. One lady, 33, died, and another two are in serious condition. The other six people were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. “All I know, it was a lot of running. A lot of people got hurt. I see people on the ground, like hurt badly,” an attendee said. “It was deathly packed. So I knew I had to get up out of there.”
GloRilla later turned to Twitter to express her sympathies, revealing that she was unaware of the situation until the concert was ended. “I’m just now hearing about what happened wtf,” she wrote. “praying everybody is ok.”
Finesse2Tymes has yet to publish a statement on the event. The rush, however, comes more than a year after the Astroworld Festival catastrophe in November 2021, which killed ten concertgoers and wounded hundreds more.
