Two women killed in stampede at GloRilla concert in Rochester

Two women are dead and another critically injured when a large crowd surged in early March following a concert at the Main Street Armory in Rochester.

Three women were taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where one of the three was pronounced dead, according to Rochester police.  On Monday evening, another woman, whom police did not identify, died. Earlier in the day, police had said that two 35-year-old women, one from Syracuse and the other from Rochester, were in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.  Seven additional concert-goers were dropped off by private vehicles at area hospitals with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, but were related to the same incident, police said.

Just after 11 p.m. Sunday, after a concert featuring musicians GloRilla ended, concert-goers were leaving the venue when the crowd started to surge and rush toward the exit, said Rochester Police Chief David Smith. There were reports of individuals hearing what they believed to be gunshots inside the venue causing the crowd to panic.”
