A brawl began yesterday during Lil Wayne’s set at A3C Festival, causing fans to flee the scene and the rapper’s set to end early.

A3C, which ran from October 3 to 7, is a festival and conference which empowers and inspires artists in the hip-hop industry. The 14th annual festival took place in Atlanta. According to social media reports, the fight yesterday wasn’t related to Lil Wayne. Fans reportedly fled the scene in fear after a concertgoer heard gunshots.

Following the show, A3C released a statement that they are still collecting information to determine what happened during the altercation and will follow up with more details as they become available.

“Please be assured that the law enforcement officers present have confirmed that there were no weapons involved,” A3C said. “This was a very unfortunate way to end what had been an otherwise amazing week of music, friendships, and connections. Thank you to everyone for your amazing support and positive energy this week. We love ya’ll.”

According to ABC News, at least 12 people were injured while the crowd was rushing out of the festival, but no serious injuries were reported.

Fans are requesting their money back, but no official statement regarding refunds has been announced at this time.
