Another boy, 16-year-old, pricked his leg during the stampede as he ran into a table. Police was not confirmed about his participation in the fight but they thought, initially, that he was also stabbed.

Someone threw a firecracker at the same time towards the exit point which produced an unrelated haste which injured 14 people. Chicago police said, “A stampede resulted into the injury of at least 14 people at the exit point of Navy Pier”. Rocco Alito, spokesman of Chicago Police, said, “Someone yelled gun as far as we believe” which produced a hustle on Thursday.

An eyewitness of the incident told Chris Coffey, NBC5’s anchor, that people did not have any clue about what was happening and they started running. Alito said, “The stabbed people are quite uncooperative with the authorities who are investigating the incident. Chicago police looks for two suspects who were involved in the fight and their investigation is underway. The unfortunate fight and stampede stabbed three people and injured 14 respectively.
