Future catches a break!
The NYPD have been forced to deny there was a shooting at Future‘s New York concert after fans claimed to hear gunshots as the show ended.
The rapper headlined Brooklyn’s Barclays Center last night (May 19) with support from Atlanta group Migos and Canadian rapper Tory Lanez.
One concert-goer posted on Twitter: “Future, migos, and tory lanez was lit. I wasn’t a fan of the gunshots and having to run for cover though.”
Authorities have now given a statement about the noise that many concluded to be gunfire. “As people were exiting the Barclays Center, there was music playing over the PA system,” Lieutenant Tarik Sheppard told VIBE.
“The song that was playing had the sound of gunshots at the end. In addition, the stage was lowered and it came down faster than normal causing a loud metal on metal crashing sound. These sounds coupled together startled some people and they began to exit quicker than normal.”
