At least 19 people were killed and 59 were injured Monday after a suicide bombing near the exits of an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in England.

The attack, which took place at 10:33 pm local time, is being treated by police as an act of terrorism.

“We are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise,” Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police Ian Hopkins said in a statement.

Global pop star Ariana Grande finished her last song, the balloons dropped and the lights turned on as the blast occurred near the exit of the Arena. Videos posted to social media caught the explosion in real time, as well as the chaotic response.

An explosion can be heard at the 0:05 second mark of the following video. Concert goers can be heard reacting in horror to the realization that a bomb has just exploded.

Twitter user @JoeAaronGregory posted a dash cam video the purportedly shows the flash of the explosion at the 0:07 second mark.

The Manchester Arena, similar to the Madison Square Garden, sits atop a major railway station in the heart of the city. Concert goers raced away from the arena into Victoria Station following the explosion.

Attendees rushed to evacuate the area after the explosion inside the foyer of the Arena. The Arena was outfitted to fit 21,000 people pop singer Ariana Grande’s third leg of a tour across the UK.
