LAS VEGAS (AP) – A music festival in Las Vegas has resumed after a “security incident” temporarily halted Saturday’s performances, authorities said.

Las Vegas Police said in a statement that three people with minor injuries were taken to local hospitals after crowds rushed from the Las Vegas Festival Grounds at the Lovers & Friends Festival.

Police said a large group of people in attendance fled the venue after shots were heard at about 10 p.m.

“At this time, there is no evidence of a shooting and the initial report is considered unfounded,” the police said in a statement.

Festival organizers showed a message on screens in the venue saying there had been a security incident, authorities were investigating and had to stay on site, officials said.

The two-day festival, which kicked off Saturday, features several R&B and rap artists, including Usher, Ludacris and Ne-Yo.
