Sible, Busano and Brian Foote were at the Jason Aldean concert Sunday when gunfire broke out. Sible said that he initially thought someone was setting off a firecracker after hearing quick bangs. Alden continued to sing, so Sible said he didn’t think much of it.
“The minute we saw Jason run off the stage, we turned around and basically ran for our lives,” Sible said. “It was a lot of chaos and a lot of pushing and shoving, not in terms of physical fighting, but everybody trying to do what they can to get themselves safe.”
The festival was fenced in, making it hard to escape, Sible said. He said his friends entered survival mode, running in the opposite direction of where they heard gunshots coming from, not sure whether they were coming from someone within the festival.
“It was chaotic,” Sible said. “People were kicking over fences, ripping things down to try to find a path to get out or hide under, running into an area of port-a-potties and food vendors. We scaled fences to get to a safer spot.”
