During a performance at the Oklahoma State Fair, Mötley Crüe’s frontman, Vince Neil, had his set cut short due to safety concerns. Reports of an active shooter near the venue prompted this decision.

Vince Neil took to Twitter to explain why his set was shortened, writing, “[Sic] At a concert in Oklahoma City Crazy night last night. 3/4 of the way through the set, people started running. We were told to get in the dressing room. There were shooters shooting people. Thank you, fans, for your understanding.”

He later expressed gratitude, saying, “Thankfully, we are all okay! Thanks to everyone who came out. Please stay safe!” Fortunately, no casualties were reported at the festival itself.

Discussing the incident that led to the festival’s evacuation, Capt. Valerie Littlejohn explained, “There was an altercation that occurred in the Bennett Event Center between two groups of people. One person pulled out a gun or produced a gun and fired a shot at another person. At the time, one shooting victim was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.”

This incident unfolded around 9 p.m., and festival organizers were promptly informed. Capt. Valerie Littlejohn added, “A few other people were reported with injuries, probably due to the chaos and the crowd leaving the fair as quickly as possible.”

The suspects involved in this incident have been apprehended by the police. However, this event highlights a concerning trend as the statistics show that there have been over 470 mass shootings across the US so far this year, with August being a particularly concerning month.

This incident also brings to mind a June incident where the suspect of a mass shooting at a Washington State Music festival admitted to the police that he was under the influence of psychedelics when he started firing into a crowd, resulting in the tragic deaths of two people and injuries to several others.
