NYPD and Barclays Center Refute Report of Gunfire Outside Future’s Nobody Safe Tour
Many attendees leaving the Future concert at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Friday night (May 19) reported hearing gunshots outside of the venue, but according to NYPD, there were no reports of gunfire or injuries. Barclays Center released a statement regarding the claims of gunfire, noting there were no shots fired inside the venue.
The Brooklyn stop of Future's Nobody Safe Tour ended in gunfire Friday night (May 19). Shots were fired just outside of Brooklyn's Barclays Center following the show, which featured artists such as A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Migos, Zoey Dollaz and Tory Lanez. XXL was there to witness the shocking events unfold.
The first three of what would be about seven gunshots were fired at around 10:45 p.m. Once people outside of the Barclays Center realized shots were being fired they began yelling, while several others stood in apparent confusion. After a brief pause, four more shots rang out, and suddenly, a stampede of bystanders began running and ducking for safety.
An ambulance arrived on the scene a short time later to help victims with injuries. A man was seen lying on a stretcher after apparently being wounded or suffering some other injury as a result of the shooting.
As of now, only one person is known to be injured as a result of the incident at the Barclays Center. Take a look at video of the aftermath below.
Barclays Center released a statement via Twitter about the gunfire, stating that no shots were fired inside the arena. "There were no gunshots tonight inside the arena. A loud noise during load out caused concern while fans exited the venue. Get home safely," reads the tweet.
Future's Nobody Safe Tour will continue on with its schedule. The next stop is at the Xfinity Theater in Hartford, Conn. on Saturday (May 20).
