Future’s “Nobody Safe” tour stop at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn ended in chaos on Friday night, as thousands of people were involved in a dangerous stampede after gunfire allegedly erupted.

According to the New York Daily News and video from social media, audience members were seen running out of the Brooklyn venue. Video and photos show fans and spectators being carried out the building on stretchers.

XXL reported that an estimated seven shots rang off close to 11 p.m. EST, but the Barclays Center and NYPD both issued a statement refuting the notion that gunshots rang out.

“There were no gunshots tonight inside the arena. A loud noise during load out caused concern while fans exited the venue. Get home safely.

“The concert ended around 11 p.m. As people were exiting the Barclays Center, there was music playing over the PA system. 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. There was no stampede and no injuries due to anyone getting trampled. There were a couple of reported minor injuries where people sprained or twisted their ankles while they were trying to quickly exit.”
