Disruption halts Wiz Khalifa concert in Indiana, 3 injured


NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (TSTIME) — Rapper Wiz Khalifa interrupted a concert in suburban Indianapolis when people began fleeing the outdoor venue, leaving three slightly injured after a disturbance, police said.

People began leaving the Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville around 10:30 p.m. Friday after a reported disturbance on part of the amphitheatre’s lawn, with some screaming about a possible shooting, The Indianapolis Star reported.

Police said in a press release early Saturday that no weapon was found after an exploration of the area at the site about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.

The outage happened about 45 minutes after Wiz Khalifa’s show that was part of the Vinyl Verse co-headlining tour with fellow rapper Logic, according to The Indianapolis Star. The music stopped and Wiz Khalifa and his band immediately left the stage.

Three people reported minor injuries and were taken to hospitals for treatment after concert-goers “self-cleared” the amphitheater, where all exits were opened in accordance with the venue’s emergency procedures, police said.
