Police have confirmed that a third person has died following a crowd crush that surged a Rochester, New York arena where Glorilla was performing Sunday evening, according to a WHAM report.

Aisha Stephens, 35, succumbed to wounds during the human stampede that left seven others injured. She was “the last remaining hospitalized victim,” police say.

On Monday, The Associated Press confirmed that two people were killed and eight were injured at Rochester’s Main Street Armory, where Glorilla was performing with Finesse2Tymes. Thirty-three-year-old Rhondesia Belton and 35-year-old Brandy Miller were the first victims pronounced dead

Lieutenant Nicholas Adams of the Rochester Police Department told CNN that officers were dispatched to the scene shortly before midnight after hearing gunshots fired inside the venue. Police found no evidence of a shooting, but found several concertgoers were injured.

“The injuries appear to be as a result of a large crowd pushing towards the exits following accounts of individuals hearing what they believed to be gunshots,” Adams told CNN.

Meanwhile, Glorilla was not aware of the deaths or injuries until after the show was over.

“I’m just now hearing about what happened wtf,” the Internet Trolls entertainer posted on Twitter after reports of the incident began to circulate online. “Praying everybody is ok.”

She later tweeted: “I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show. My fans mean the world to me 😢praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected 🙏🏽”

Fans deluged the post with replies about the incident.

“I really do feel bad for the celebrities that gotta go through shit like this .. they always get the blame for it,” one user wrote.

On Wednesday, Rochester announced that Main Street Armory has been prohibited from hosting any public events. The event space’s license, which was pending renewal, has been denied.
