Count The Shade Room previously reported, concert-goers began rushing toward the venue’s exit after they said they heard gunshots inside the venue. However, police found no evidence of a gunshot.

“What really hurts is to think of the fear and terror that went through his head when he fell and felt all the pressure from the feet on top of him.”

Miller’s sister, Michelle, said she does not blame the concert promoters for her brother’s death. But he believes that “negligence” played a big role in this tragedy and that the parties involved need to be held accountable.

“I don’t blame the promoters because they didn’t push him to the ground or come here. But there are steps to avoid negligence in everything you do in life, and that’s it.”
