Live Nation stated, “There was an altercation in the roadway backstage.
“Out of respect for those involved and in coordination with local authorities, artists and organizers decided not to move forward with remaining sets so the festival was ended an hour early.”
Someone else posted a video on Twitter of people running for the exits during the show…

After the incident, the concert was halted, with Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and Ice Cube not going on stage.
This is now the second deadly incident at a rap show in recent weeks.
In early November, 10 people died due to an incident at the AstroWorld festival.
In that incident, the fans were encouraged to move closer to the stage, and dozens of people were injured, having been crushed from the crowd moving forward.
