Another victim who was hospitalized following a stampede at GloRilla and Finesse2tymes' concert earlier this week has died.

On Thursday, March 9, CBS News reported that a third woman, Aisha Stephens, passed away on Wednesday night from the injuries she sustained during the violent incident. The 35-year-old had been in critical condition since she entered the hospital on Sunday. Two other women, 33-year-old Rhondesia Belton and 35-year-old Brandy Miller, died on Monday. All three were severely injured inside the Main Street Armory in Rochester, N.Y. after hundreds of fans charged towards the exits at the end of the concert. Fans reportedly heard gunshots go off at the venue, but police found no evidence of gunfire.

"I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show," Glo tweeted on Monday following the first deaths were reported. "My fans mean the world to me 😢praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected 🙏🏽"

Since the tragic event unfolded, both GloRilla and Finesse2tymes have expressed their condolences to all the victims and their families. As for the venue, Main Street Armory had it's license revoked as the investigation into the incident continues. Rochester Police Chief David M. Smith said the owner failed to meet with police and other city officials for a scheduled meeting. Once the owner bailed, Smith denied the venue's application to renew its one-year entertainment license. The venue is no longer allowed to host any kind of public events including "concerts, amplified music, and athletic events or games, including volleyball or cheerleading."

Finesse2tymes recently spoke about the incident. After denying his involvement, he suggested that the stampede could've been caused by something that fell to the ground which made a loud noise similar to a gunshot. The Mob Ties rapper said he was the first to perform at the show, and left before the stampede happened.

"As far as the situation in New York, condolences to the family and the people who was injured," he said.
