NBC News / MGN

ROCHESTER, NY (Newsource) – City officials in Rochester New York announced Monday prosecutors will not file criminal charges in connection to that deadly stampede at a music festival.

It happened nearly two months ago at the Main Street Armory. The venue holds five thousand people.

Investigators say three people died and eight others were injured as the Glorilla concert was ending and people rushed toward the exits.

The decision not to prosecute comes after a month-long investigation. The venue was up to date with all fire codes at the time of the incident.

While no charges will be filed, the city plans to review its licensing procedures for entertainment events and put in place additional safety and security measures.
