UPDATE 8:45 PM EST: Earlier reporting included law enforcement reports of 20 fatalities. However, the latest official police statement says there are only 19 confirmed so far. Law enforcement officials are also treating this as “a terrorist incident until police know otherwise.”
We’re still in disbelief.
While the singer is said to be “okay,” multiple fan fatalities and injuries have been reported.
It is still unclear as to what caused the tragedy, but Hollywood is already lending its support to both England and the Arianator community, responding on Twitter with messages such as:
Tearing up imagining innocent concert goers losing their lives.. praying for everyone and all #arianators. ├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╝├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╝├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╝
