Two loud explosions were reported this evening in Manchester, United Kingdom.
People attending an Ariana Grande concert fled the arena after hearing the noises, which some users on Twitter users have described as sounding like gunshots.
One Twitter user wrote: “Honestly worst night of my existence. Just kept running from Manchester Arena for my life.”
The noises were heard about 30 seconds after the concert finished.
The Greater Manchester Police Department has releases a statement saying there are a “number of confirmed fatalities and others injured. Please AVOID the area.”
