Reports of shots fired at the vigil do not appear to be accurate. We do have injured in the chaos and are attempting to restore order.
Informally initial report by LA Fire identifying 12 treated at scene, one transported. No clear nature of that injury. Many treated on scene for sprained ankles.— Chief Michel Moore (@LAPDChiefMoore) April 2, 2019
The vigil, which was attended by hundreds, was being held outside of Nipsey's Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. "At some point things got a little chaotic, there may have been a fight that broke out in the crowd," LAPD's Josh Rubenstein said to ABC7.
It's currently unclear exactly how many people were injured in the incident. Footage shows the crowd quickly dispersing though police are unsure as to what caused the crowd to scatter, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Our appreciation to those from our community actively working with members at the vigil to quell violence. Their work is vital
According to the Los Angeles Times, an official from the Los Angeles Fire Department has said that one person sustained a stab wound while others were injured after they were trampled.
"We had at least one patient in critical condition that was transported at the initiation of the incident, but I cannot confirm the type of injuries suffered at this point," LAFD's Margaret Stewart told USA TODAY. "We have over 65 firefighters on scene."
