A second Lil Durk concert in Chicago ended prematurely after someone falsely reported an active shooter in the venue. The event was hosted at the United Center on Saturday night (August 12), and was reportedly disrupted when attendees began hurriedly heading towards the exits, roughly midway through the show.
The Chicago Police Department responded to the report, but they were unable to find any evidence of an active shooter or shooting. However, by the time the police had cleared the venue, the concert had already ended.
In the midst of the ensuing chaos, some attendees took advantage of the situation, absconding with merchandise available for sale within the arena. Lil Durk took to social media to express his gratitude towards his devoted fans and to acknowledge those seen stealing the Merch.
“Don’t believe the hype we bigger than big thank you Chicago [Goat emoji] till next time,” he wrote on his Instagram stories. “And who all stole the merchandise tag me so I can repost y’all crazy ass.”
TMZ reports they were no injuries reported and no arrests were made.
Meanwhile, Lil Durk has announced the release of Almost Healed deluxe. The Chicago rapper revealed the updated version of his 2023 album was due to arrive later this month while escorting YouTuber-turned-boxer, Jake Paul, to the ring for his showdown against Nate Diaz earlier this month.
The original album featuring J. Cole, Morgan Wallen, Future, 21 Savage and more peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
