A crowd at a Wiz Khalifa concert in Indiana on Friday left the venue in a mass panic over fears of a possible shooting, ending the performance.

Fans rushed to leave Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville at about 10:30 p.m., with some of them shouting about a potential mass shooting.

A spokesperson for the Noblesville Police told the Indianapolis Star he had no information about what led to the crowd’s panic and no shooting has been confirmed. 

No shots were heard from the audience section near the front and left part of the stage, according to the IndyStar. Most attendees exited through the main entrance, although some encountered closed gates or scaled wire fences on their way out.
