The site of a deadly crowd rush at a Rochester concert has now been sold.
Main Street Armory owner Scott Donaldson sold the venue on March 23, 2023 to 900 E Main Street Rochester LLC for $550,000, according to paperwork filed with the Monroe County Clerk’s Office.
This comes weeks after three people were killed and seven others injured when a panicked crowd tried to quickly exit the Armory following a GloRilla and Finnesse2tymes concert on March 5.
It was announced days later that the venue would not be allowed to host public entertainment events until a police investigation into the stampede concluded.
Rhondesia Belton, 33, of Buffalo, Aisha Haskins-Stephens, 35, of Syracuse and Brandy Miller, 35, of Rochester, all died from injuries they suffered in the crowd rush.
On Tuesday, national civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump announced plans to file a lawsuit against the Armory. However, a scheduled news conference was postponed due to travel issues. A new date and time for the rescheduled announcement have not yet been determined.
Spectrum News 1 has not independently confirmed that the sale of the property was connected or prompted by the recent events.
