New details in Georgia World Congress Center stampede

Posted: Updated:

Georgia World Congress Center officials now know what caused Saturday’s mass panic and left ten people injured at the 11th Annual Car and Bike show.

GWCC officials say a motorcycle back-fired and the sound was mistaken for gun shots being fired.

The event featured performances by T.I and the Hustle Gang, T-Pain.

According to GWCC General Manager Mark Zimmerman, an altercation broke out on the exhibit floor.

"No shots were fired, this investigation continues" according to Zimmerman.

“During the event there was a lot of commotion waiting for TI to perform,” said attendee Alana Kushiner.

Kushiner said a large bike was pushed over when the fight broke out.

Several people were taken to the hospital.
