New York – Mass Panic As Central Park Concert Crowd Believes To Hear ‘Gunshots’

New York’s Central Park was the scene of a short period of mass panic among thousands of spectators at a festival when a fence fell over.

The sound of the falling fence made some people think of gunshots, after which they started running towards the nearest exit. The event made clear that people are afraid of a repeat of what happened on 1 October 2017, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada.
