Hamilton Musical Ends in Chaos in San Francisco

The wildly popular musical Hamilton ended in chaos Friday night in San Francisco’s Orpheum Theater.

What audience members thought was an active shooter ended up being a medical emergency, officials said.

People reportedly heard there was someone with a gun inside the theater and started screaming, leading others into a panic, running out of the theater and sending the Hamilton cast backstage.

“There was no one with a gun, there were no shots fired, at the end it was a medical emergency,” said San Francisco Police Captain Renee Pagano.

A boy reportedly had a seizure and someone else had a heart attack.

Two others had to be transported to the hospital with injuries to the head and leg but are expected to be okay.
