LAS VEGAS (AP) — 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 post on Twitter that performances have continued at the Lovers & Friends Festival after a report of shots fired was unfounded.
“At this time, there is no evidence of a shooting,” the post said.
Police told KSNV-TV that one person was injured as large groups of people were rushing from the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. The person’s injuries appear to be non-life-threatening.
Festival organizers displayed a message on screens in the venue that said there was a security incident, authorities were investigating and to remain in place, officials said.
The two-day festival features several R&B and rap artists, including Usher, Ludacris and Ne-Yo. The festival began Saturday.
