2:25 PM PT — A spokesperson for the Nottingham Police Department tells us they got a call around 9:30 PM for a reported smoke flare inside the venue. We’re told at least two people are getting treated for minor injuries. Lil Pump‘s show came to a screeching halt after someone tossed tear gas into the crowd … sending fans scrambling and gasping for air.

Pump was performing at Rock City in Nottingham, United Kingdom Friday when what witnesses describe as tear gas started to fill the auditorium. It’s currently unclear who launched the attack.
Pump, his crew and everyone else inside the building quickly evacuated … but he started the party right back up.

Once outside, Pump hopped on top of his tour bus and performed “I Love It” — his song with Kanye West — for his fans … who seemed unfazed by what went down just minutes before.
Police and paramedics are currently on scene, but so far, it doesn’t seem like there are any serious injuries.
Law enforcement sources tell us the incident was not terrorism.
