There was shooting outside the concert venue, and concert-goers say they actually didn’t hear any shots

The shooting took place outside the Old Branch Building. A concert-goer, Latasha Robinson, was in the building but said she didn’t hear any gunshots, likely because of the loud music.

“I didn’t hear any shots. I actually had some people that I helped in the VIP area, so we were all on stage, so we didn’t hear anything,” she said.

Robinson noted the sad irony in the fact that everyone inside was having the times of their lives, while people were dying and suffering just outside the concert venue.

“Just knowing that something like this happened out there while such a good time was going on… there were no fights, there was no drunken chaos, there was nothing,” she told KAIT-TV.

As soon as the shooting started, security forces pushed everyone back to get back inside.

Meanwhile, Robinson described the scene of the fatal shooting she witnessed outside after shots were fired.

“When I got out of here the police had taped both sides and they were looking for gun shells and my heart just sank. Just to know something like this happened outside,” she said.
