After a disturbance broke out at a Wiz Khalifa concert in an outdoor venue in a suburb of Indianapolis, the rapper abruptly ended the performance. Three people were treated for minor injuries.

Around 10:30 p.m., patrons began filing out of Noblesville’s Ruoff Music Center. The Indianapolis Star reported that on Friday, August 26th, there was a disturbance on the amphitheater’s lawn, with some people shouting about a possible shooting.

The venue is located about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Indianapolis, and police said in a news release early Saturday that no weapons were located during a search of the area.

According to The Indianapolis Star, the incident occurred 45 minutes into Wiz Khalifa’s performance, which was part of the Vinyl Verse tour that he was co-headlining with fellow rapper Logic. There was an abrupt halt in the performance, and Wiz Khalifa and his crew hurriedly exited the stage.

After concertgoers “self-evacuated” the amphitheater, with all exits opened per the venue’s emergency procedures, three people reported minor injuries and were taken to hospitals for treatment.

According to the newspaper’s account, some attendees were using their phones in the parking lot while others wept and comforted each other.

On Saturday, The Associated Press left a message with Ruoff’s owner and operator, concert promotion company Live Nation, requesting comment.

Details about the nature of Friday’s disturbance were not immediately available from police after a message was left.
