The incident occurred in Atlanta...

Lil Wayne fans reportedly fled the singer’s concert in Atlanta last night, after gunshots were reportedly heard in the crowd.

Footage from the performance at the A3C Hip Hop Festival shows a huge crowd of fans as they desperately attempt to make an escape.

Police have since confirmed that 12 people were injured as they tried to leave, but no evidence of a shooting was ultimately discovered at the scene.

According to WSB-TV, the ‘Tha Carter V’ rapper was only three songs into his set when the security scare saw the performance being pulled.

Atlanta Police officials claim that the incident escalated after someone in the crowd claimed to have heard gun shots. Fans were reportedly left with ankle injuries as they attempted to jump over festival fences.

Posting on Twitter after the incident, Lil Wayne wrote: “Hope everyone at A3C is safe!!”

Speaking to The Fader, a spokesperson for Atlanta Police said: “It appears that someone in the crowd at the event located in the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. and Central Ave. yelled that they heard gunshots.

“This caused people at the event to attempt to flee the location. There have been approximately twelve minor injuries reported to police such as ankle injuries and lacerations from attempting to jump fences.

“At this time we have been unable to locate any evidence to support claims that shots were fired. The event location is being cleared out by police at this time. The investigation continues.”
