Third Person Dies From Crowd Crush at Glorilla Concert

A third person died after a crushed crowd at a Glorilla concert in Rochester, New York, this past Sunday (March 5), reports local CNN affiliate WHAM. A 35-year-old Syracuse woman named Aisha Stephens died Wednesday night (March 8). Police confirmed to the outlet that Stephens was “the last remaining hospitalized victim” of the stampede, and that seven other attendees sustained non-life-threatening injuries to her.

On March 6, The Associated Press reported that two people were killed and eight others injured during the incident at Rochester’s Main Street Armory, where Glorilla was performing with Finesse2Tymes. Rhodesia Belton, 33, and Brandy Miller, 35, were the first victims to be pronounced dead.

Lt. Nicholas Adams of the Rochester Police Department told CNN that officers arrived at the scene around 11 p.m. in response to a call about gunfire inside the event space. Officers found no evidence of a shooting, but did find several injured concertgoers. “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,” Adams told CNN.

“I just found out what happened wtf”, Glorilla wrote on twitter after reports of the incident began to circulate. “Praying everyone is okay.” she later tweeted:: “I am devastated and heartbroken by the tragic deaths that occurred after the show on Sunday. My fans mean the world to me 😢 praying for their families and a speedy recovery for everyone affected 🙏🏽”

On Wednesday, the City of Rochester announced that the Main Street Armory is currently prohibited from hosting public events after the pending renewal of its entertainment license was denied.
