The festivities, which were briefly suspended, carried on even as dozens of fans ran in several directions at the south end of the square.
.@CHCHTV @CHCHNews safe but I heard 4 rapid bursts and just chaos. Everyone just scattered. Tried to get inside the Sheraton and they locked the doors, security came out and didn’t let anyone in. There was a couple seconds of calm when more running. Everyone was sprinting.
