Multiple people trampled and injured as ‘Stampede’ erupts at Barclays Center in Brooklyn

A stampede erupted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn after rumors began to swirl there was an active shooter in the arena.

At least 10 people suffered injuries just after midnight Sunday, when people began screaming someone was firing shots. It wasn’t true, but the crowd didn’t know it.

It’s unclear how the rumor first started, but it spread like wildfire. A security guard said the rumor was that someone was firing shots outside the arena. That caused people who were leaving the boxing match to make a mad dash back inside, and it became a madhouse.
