Two people have died in the stampede that occurred after GloRilla‘s show in Rochester, New York on the evening of March 5.

Rochester Police confirmed the death of an unnamed 35-year-old woman on March 6, pushing up the death toll to two following the death of 33-year-old Rhondesia Belton. AP added that another woman was still in critical condition, while seven more people were sent to hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.

The stampeded occurred at around 11:00 p.m. after GloRilla and Finesse2tymes finished their show at the Main Street Armory in Rochester. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the fatal event — which saw audience members “surge dangerously toward the exits” — which could have been “crowd size, shots fired, pepper spray and other contributing factors.” Police Chief David M. Smith added, “We do not have any evidence of gunshots being fired or of anyone being shot or stabbed at the scene.”

Mayor Malik Evans announced that they “are going to hold people accountable for what happened last night, period,” and that he intends “to get to the bottom of this.”

GloRilla also took to Twitter to address the stampede shortly after, writing,”I’m just now hearing about what happened wtf[.] praying everybody is ok.”

Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
