“I heard a pop,” concert-goer Clarissa Johnson told WREG News. “I’m not sure what happened but I had a suite, so I told all my crew, ‘get down.’ So we evacuated. Once we evacuated, did a head count. I’m still not sure what happened. It’s not so sweet tonight, though.”

The FedExForum was evacuated after the shooting, according to WREG.

Concertgoers say the shots were fired during the first 30 minutes of the show, per the outlet.
