A third woman has died from crush type injuries sustained during a stampede at a GloRilla concert in Rochester, NY last weekend.

Rochester police said Aisha Stephens, 35 (left), of Syracuse, died from injuries suffered during a crowd surge at the Main Street Armory on Sunday night.
Two other women — Rhondesia Belton, 33 (top right), of Buffalo, New York, and Brandy Miller, 35 (bottom right), of Rochester — died on Monday.
The incident happened during a concert headlined by aspiring rappers GloRilla and Finesse2tymes.
Rochester Police Chief David Smith on Monday said there was no evidence of a shooting at the concert.
He cited “possibly crowd size, shots fired, pepper spray and other contributing factors.”
City officials on Wednesday revoked the Main Street Armory’s liquor license and shut down the venue indefinitely. A sign posted on the door said the Main Street Armory was shut down. The venue cannot host any public entertainment “pending a complete and thorough review of this matter,” Smith said Wednesday.
GloRilla, of Memphis, is best known for her rap song “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).” She is pictured with singer Beyonce at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 5.
GloRilla tweeted on Monday: “I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show. My fans mean the world to me praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected.”
