Initial reports claimed that there was a shooting that left crowds spewing out into the streets in panic but it was merely a fight that went south. While fans at the festival live tweeted details of what was going down, almost everyone’s tweets were upset that Weezy only got the chance to perform two songs. Tha Carter V rapper dropped his much anticipated album a few weeks ago so the cut performance definitely was a hit to many Tunechi fans.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, someone yelled out that they heard gunshots that led to the crowd’s confusion and panic. Although there were no major injuries, the commotion led to 12 people with minor injuries. APD’s Twitter statement informed the city with the following message:
It appears that someone in the crowd at the event located in the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. and Central Ave. yelled that they heard gunshots. This caused people at the event to attempt to flee the location. There have been approximately twelve minor injuries reported to police such as ankle injuries and lacerations from attempting to jump fences.
