March 6, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to the Rolling Stone, Memphis rapper GloRilla’s performance on Sunday night drew in a crowd of over 4,000 people at the event held at Main Street Armory in Rochester, New York. Finesse2Tyme’s shared the stage with Glorilla and completed the set with a satisfied audience.

However, as concert-goers were leaving the venue, false reports o of a shooting led to pandemonium. The chaos resulted in nine people injured and one fatality.

Rhondesia Belton, known as Desia to her loved ones, was a loving mother whose untimely death has left her family and friends heartbroken.

Condolences poured in on Facebook with friends expressing sadness and disbelief.

“Desia baby girl I love you and I’m going to miss you dearly.”

“Desia was really one of a kind, everybody know Desia with the birthmark. Mannn ima miss you girlfriend!!! You supported my business plenty of times…This is the sickest thing I ever heard of.”

On Monday’s news briefing, Police Chief David M. Smith corroborated the investigation’s conclusion that the stampede was triggered by an apparent fear of gunshots, despite the absence of any evidence indicating that shots had been fired.

“We do not have any evidence of gunshots being fired or of anyone being shot or stabbed at the scene,” he said. “What began last night as a night of live music and fun for the performer GloRilla ended in tragedy with one person dead and two more fighting for their lives.”

According to a press release from the police department a 35-year-old woman from Rochester and a 35-year-old woman from Syracuse are currently in critical condition. In addition, it was reported that seven other individuals sustained injuries but were not life-threatening.

“This is a tragedy of epic proportions,” Rochester Mayor Malik Evans said at a news conference. “It’s something that all of us who love concerts worry about. When you go to a concert you do not expect to be trampled. Your loved ones expect you to be able to come home and talk about the experience you had at that great concert.”
