LAS VEGAS – A music festival in Las Vegas has resumed after a “security incident” temporarily halted performances on Saturday, authorities said.
Las Vegas police said in a statement that three people were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries after crowds at the Lovers & Friends Festival ran out of the Las Vegas Festival grounds.
Police said a large group of attendees fled the scene after gunshots were heard around 10 p.m.
“At this time, there is no evidence of a shooting and the initial report was deemed unfounded,” police said in a statement.
Festival organizers displayed a message on screens at the venue saying there was a security incident, authorities were investigating and to remain at the venue, officials said.
The two-day festival, which kicked off on Saturday, features various R&B and rap artists, including Usher, Ludacris and Ne-Yo.
