Fire Breaks Out At Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Concert, 1 Injured
Police in riot gear dispersed a crowd of about 500 people about 10:30 p.m. Friday at the Warner Grand Theatre, an art deco venue opened in 1931.
The victim, whose name was withheld, was struck in the head with a barstool and beaten unconscious, said police Sgt. Mark Jauregui said. The man was recovering at a hospital, he said.
Several fights broke out, and the concert was halted, he said.
Police intervened and started breaking up the crowd of about 1,500 people, but about a third of them refused to leave and tried to get back inside, police said.
A man who allegedly took a swing at a police officer was taken into custody for resisting arrest.
